Taking this show on the road....

This week I'll be presenting my research at the GCTE Conference in Pine Mountain, Georgia.

Welcome Georgia Council Teachers of English! For those of you new to this blog, here is a recap of some of the blog's features. First, check out the 100+ and Counting List (to the right) which includes adolescent literature books with Deaf Characters. The list is now up to 172 books! I continually update this list but don't move the post from the February 17, 2007 date. Wow, it is almost my blog’s first birthday!
By scrolling down on the right, you will find sections entitled Blog Archives and the 2007 interviews. You can also search this blog in the top left corner and I’ve tried to add labels to the posts to help identify the categories. For example, if you’re looking for characters who use sign language, there is a label “uses sign language”, etc. Here is a recap of interviews.

Thanks Ladies! Here is the irony of all ironies. On my first plane to Georgia, I sat by a "mom" with a Deaf Seven-year-old! My husband said he'd be more surprised if I sat by a women with a hearing son. Situations like that always happen to me:)
