Response to last blog

Sorry I am doing my response this way but for some reason I am not able to post under the comments. 
There has been a lot that I have learned throughout this class, all of which will help me as I go into the work force. But there has been one thing that has really stuck out to me, as many people have said, the idea of considering all the options. There isn't going to be one set mold for every deaf and hard of hearing child. But rather, we need to be willing to try all the different milkshake flavors to find what is best for that child.

This is it!

So here we are at the end of the semester! It's hard to believe that right? Over the semester we have had the chance to learn so many new, different, and exciting things form Cathy White. She has pushed us to truly challenge ourselves, and to step out side of our comfort zones. With that being said, finals are coming up and I know that everyone is probably just as nervous as I am. So Abigail and I thought it would be a good chance to reflect on the semester. What have you learned, what do you want to focus on for the final, and what are somethings we might need to discuss as a group? This is our last chance to go over these things and talk as a group, so lets see what we can learn before the final. Good luck next week to everyone and I hope you have a good week.

Semester coming to an end!

Kendall and I are in charge of the blog this week and we were reflecting on how next week will be our very last class. Since the class is coming to a close we were wondering, what was your biggest take away or what has surprised you throughout this class, and which guest speaker did you enjoy listening to the most?

Guest Speaker Anita

Sorry I have been taking care of my father in the hospital. I am assuming that is my turn to post something this week! I have heard a lot of interesting facts about our guest speaker Anita last week. One thing that really interests me is she did not like the labels of D or d in the word deaf as a label. So, if you want, comment on what did you learn from here or what did you think was interesting about her. I hope everybody enjoy the rest of the week and getting ready for FINALS! I wish you all luck on FINALS WEEK!

KSD Athletic Fun Night

KSD will have an Athletic Fun night this Thursday, the 28th.  The staff will play the seniors in a game of basketball.  I am planning on attending and would love to see many of you go as well!  Anyone who does attend may email me a follow up paragraph stating, "A Highlight of a Residential School Senior Activity" and request 15 bonus points be added to any assignment. --- :-) Obviously, I'll be at the game and need to connect with you to verify attendance at the game.

Media Project!

21 Digital Tools To Build Vocabulary

Saw this come across my Tweeter Feed today.  I checked out several of the tools and they are great.  You might find them useful in your own study but I'm confident they will be useful to those of you who will be teaching enter the classroom.
