We decided that the language Devon is going to study in High School will be ASL (American Sign Language). Actually, we'll all be learning it but she's the one that will have assignments she has to complete. Before we start I asked Devon to write this months research paper (she has to do one each month) on the history of ASL.
Yesterday I took her to the library and taught her how to do a catalog search on her topic, how to use the dewey decimal system and how to use index cards to organize her information. Before that she was using books from home. the internet and just jotting stuff down in a notebook. I think she did pretty good. She really liked having all her facts written on the cards and being able to shuffle them around until they were in the order she wanted to use them.
