Storyboard Text

  • Thomas Gallaudet Meets Laurent Clerc
  • Hi, it's so good to finally meet you! Would you like to travel to my home to try and get a university started?
  • Hi, it's so good to finally meet you! Would you like to travel to my home to try and get a university started?
  • Oh, but that is my dream! Yes, of course, I'd love to help my community! Thank you for inviting me!
  • Going Back to America
  • We should have both teachers and students learn sign language for easier communication. This will surely set the students up for success!
  • That sounds like a great idea! I'm glad we are figuring out ways to help the Deaf community.
  • Let's do it!
  • Gallaudet University
  • Are you guys ready for the Chemistry test tomorrow?
  • No, not really. At least we get an education, though! If it weren't for Thomas Gallaudet, we as Deaf people wouldn't have what we now do.
  • While in France, Gallaudet met Laurent Clerc, a deaf former student of de la Eppe's. He, too, wanted to spread sign language across to the Americas. He agreed to go to New England to start a school for the deaf.
  • In 1817, the first school for the deaf in America was established in Hartford, Connecticut. At the time, it was called the American Asylum at Hartford for the Deaf and Dumb. It is now known as Gallaudet University.
  • This university taught curriculum in sign language. Many of the people living in Martha's Vineyard, a nearby area, had a hearing loss, so they used their own sign language that they had created mixed with French Sign Language to teach. Today, it is known as the famous and historical school for the Deaf.
