Hello Tricia!
Thank you for this message. And welcome to the SignWriting List. Yes.  
You posted your question in the right place!

Do you know about SignWriting? It writes the movements and facial  
expressions of sign languages with symbols, taking away the need for  

But we do have a cool translation program where you can type in the  
English word-glosses and get the equivalent in written signs in  
SignWriting. Would you like to learn how to do that for your class? I  
bet they will be amazed...

Write again here to the List and tell me if you are interested in  
learning how to use the SignPuddle Translation program...

What is IX and Pro-1? You can teach me too ;-))

Val ;-)
