- Deaf and Hard of Hearing Program info - University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. My name is Amy Otis-Wilborn and I am the coordinator for the Certification Program in Deaf/Hard of Hearing at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee offers a distance education program that prepares individuals to teach children/youth who are Deaf/Hard of Hearing. The program is designed for individuals who are certified in some/any area of special education and want to add on either DHH Certification (only) or DHH Certification and Masters. All work is at the graduate level.
Graduates earn Wisconsin State Certification. Applicants who want certification in their own state must determine if their state's certification is reciprocal with Wisconsin's. However, we can design a program that meets a state's requirements so that certification can be directly through the individual state.
Attached is a brochure outlining the program . Please distribute as you think is appropriate. I am available to talk with you or another representative in your certification office if there are any questions. At this time, we do have a federal grant that can provide some tuition support to students within and outside of Wisconsin.

- One Million Bones Collection - Since August, I have been coordinating the One Million Bones project in New Hampshire, while also settling into my teaching role at Souhegan High School in Amherst. Over a dozen NH schools have joined this collaboration, though I am still seeking schools and community groups to make handmade bones. The purpose of the project is to raise awareness about humanitarian conflicts through making handmade clay or plaster bones. For each bone that is made the Bezos Family Foundation donates $1 for relief in Central Africa. The one million bones made nationwide will also be exhibited in a large-scale installation in Washington D.C. this June. The project has many layers of meaning for participants, including interdisplinary connections between the arts, social studies, and literacy. I have attached a few documents sharing more information about the project. Please visit www.onemillionbones.org for more information and I highly recommend watching the video on the homepage, which highlights an installation with 50,000 bones.

America’s Founding Fathers and the Classics of Greece and Rome
The organizers of the 2013 C.A.N.E. Summer Institute invite you to join us this summer as we celebrate the role of the Greek and Roman Classics – literature, history, art, and architecture – in the formation of our own national traditions. Whether you are a high school or college teacher of Latin and/or Greek, English, History, or other related disciplines, a graduate student, or a devoted lifelong learner, you will enjoy an enriching educational experience that includes a wide variety of mini-courses, lectures, workshops, and special events while also offering ample opportunity for collegial interaction between participants. Special attention will be focused on the literature (both prose and poetry), art, architecture, and other aspects of Greco-Roman antiquity that most strongly influenced America’s Founding Fathers, as well on the Classical authors and works most commonly read in our nation’s schools and colleges in the formative years of the 18th century, many of which are still taught regularly today.

- UNH Graduate Course: Sociolinguistics of Spanish in the World, the U.S. & New
SPAN 997: La sociolingüística de español en el mundo, en los EEUU y en Nuevo Hampshire
Sociolinguistics of Spanish in the World, the U.S. & New Hampshire
This graduate seminar will explore Spanish language variation around the world, from Spain to Latin America to the U.S., including New Hampshire. Special attention will be paid to the issues involving bilingualism, bilingual language acquisition, bilingual education and Spanish heritage language language, which should be of particular interest to students who are or plan to become teachers of Spanish.
The course will be taught in Spanish and all required reading will be in Spanish in order to provide students the opportunity to practice and improve (or simply use and enjoy) their Spanish-language skills. The course will meet weekly on Wednesday evenings from 6:10-9 pm at UNH's Durham campus from Aug. 28 through December 4; there will be no meeting on Nov. 27 due to the Thanksgiving holiday. The instructor, Prof. Holly R. Cashman, can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or you are interested in more information.
