SignWriting in US Schools...(also continued next message)

1. SignWriting has been used in the Albuquerque Public School System  
in New Mexico, USA, since 1999.

It was first initiated by a combination of donated materials and a  
research project by Dr. Cecilia Flood, but now it continues in some  
classrooms because teachers feel it is important...not because anyone  
is asking them to do it. Some teach using SignWriting software,  
others teach writing SignWriting by handwriting skills must  
be developing...
