Art, History and Stamps
In 2021, while seeking a way to engage students at Deaf schools around the country in our efforts to secure Laurent Clerc his stamp we came across the idea of integrating Laurent Clerc and Flat Laurent into school modules on Deaf History and Culture.
Our goal is to have every Deaf school in the nation participate in our art, history and stamp module. We will demonstrate Laurent Clerc's impact and resilience within Deaf Education today!
The American School For The Deaf, West Hartford CT
The American School For The Deaf was the first permanent school for the Deaf in the United States.
It seemed fitting that they should be the first school to develop this art, history and stamp module.
In November 2021, teachers and art educators created and ran the program with the their students and it appeared to be a great success.
The California School For The Deaf, Fremont California
Public School 347
The American Sign Language & English Lower School, Manhattan NYC
In early 2022, the California School for the Deaf, in Fremont, was the second school to take on the challenge of refining the art, history and stamp module. Their hard work resulted streamlined the presentation and generated wonderful content for our stamp application while at the same time teaching Deaf History.
Please take a look at their creative work!
#47 The ASL School, as it is commonly called is the 3rd school to take interest in using the art, history and stamp module in their classrooms. Watch as this process unfolds in the coming months!
