Storyboard Text

  • Gallaudet and Cogswell meet
  • She's deaf
  • We should go to Braidwood first
  • Travel to Europe
  • Yes, I want to learn how to teach my daughter
  • Arriving at Braidwood
  • If you want to learn you must serve as an apprentice
  • Absolutely not.
  • Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet, a Yale graduate and ordained clergyman, met the Dr. Mason Fitch Cogswell family and their deaf daughter, Alice. Instantly, Gallaudet took interest in Alice and the deaf community as a whole.
  • Abbe' Sicard is in town
  • Thomas did you hear? Abbe' Sicard is in town!
  • Really? I have to go see him, maybe he can actually help us!
  • Together Gallaudet and Cogswell sailed to Europe together to visit the Braidwood Academy to study how deaf kids were taught.
  • Clerc goes to America with them
  • Maybe we should start learning French sign language so we can teach the kids
  • Once the two arrived at Braidwood they were shocked to see the kids were taught oral communication. However, they insisted that if Gallaudet wanted to learn their ways he must serve several years there, he refused.
  • They established the first deaf school in America
  • Finally theres a school for us!
  • Gallaudet found out that the director of The Royal Institution For Deaf-Mutes was in town,so he decided he would go see him at one of his lectures in London.
  • As they sailed back to America they taught each other signs so they could better communicate, but for Gallaudet and Gogswell, it was to teach the deaf kids at home a more official language
  • The American school for the deaf was a place deaf people could finally go and feel safe with other people like them. "ASL" changed their culture because it combine French and American signs, creating the official language for deaf people in America..
