- English Splash! Resource for Teaching English to Deaf Students
English Splash! was created to help link teachers to valuable teaching tools, information, and other resources. Like a drop of water that sends ripples into the water around it, English Splash! is a "drop" of information designed to initiate "ripples" of resources for teachers to access and use in the classroom. Please visit the English Splash! site soon and take advantage of the numerous resources there for YOU!
- Letter to CSI Faculty
All faculty with a Deaf student enrolled in their class receive a letter at the beginning of a semester to introduce them to the idea of working with an ASL Interpreter. RCD contact information is available on the letter for further questions or comments. Together, the RCD coordinator and CSI professor can provide a fully accessible CSI classroom experience. All CUNY Colleges are encouraged to use this letter as a template for their own programs.
