Extractions: A Selected Bibliography The Gallaudet University Library contains a large amount of materials about deaf people and about hearing people involved with the deaf world. This bibliography suggests some books and other resources for finding information about those people. Only books and other resources containing information about many deaf people are included in this list; the Library has hundreds of books about specific deaf individuals, far too many to be included here. Use ALADIN to find those books about individual deaf people. The best single place to begin is the Gallaudet University Library guide to deaf biographies by Thomas R. Harrington, a computer database of over 4000 references to biographies of deaf people and a few hearing people significant to the deaf. For most persons, a very brief biographical outline is given, followed by references to fuller information about that person in over two hundred books and/or periodicals. An ethnicity index at the end indicates which of these people are known to belong to certain minority groups. All the short biographies included in the "Books" section below, plus hundreds more, are included in this database. This database is available online. It can be reached through the Deaf-related resources section on the Gallaudet University Library home page

The Internet as a Source of Information The Internet contains a wealth of information published by governments, organizations, educational institutions, commercial enterprises, and private individuals. It is especially useful in locating information about popular culture, current events, and current statistics. Almanacs The Oxford English dictionary defines "almanac" as "an annual table, or (more usually) a book of tables, containing a calendar of months and days, with astronomical data and calculations, ecclesiastical and other anniversaries, besides other "useful information", and, in former days, astrological and meteorological forecasts". The modern almanac is typically a compendium of geo-political facts, commonly but not necessarily issued annually.

The presence of many of these resources is the result of one individual, Robert R. Bisaillon. An avid genealogist, author, and teacher, Mr. Bisaillon amassed an extensive collection of materials dealing with Acadian and French-Canadian genealogy. After his death on October 25, 1994, it was announced that he had bequeathed his book collection to the Connecticut State Library. It is through his generosity that the Connecticut State Library is able to offer many of the following Canadian genealogical sources: Other Institutions with Relevant Canadian Collections Introductory Resources A list of introductory books on Canadian genealogy at the Connecticut State Library follows. The list provided below is by no means exhaustive. Researchers should consult the library's main catalogs, the Manuscripts and Archives Catalog, and State Archives research guides to ascertain if there are additional resources. Baxter, Angus.

Extractions: The Faculty of Education, University of Ottawa Abstract This paper outlines how verbal protocols were used to compare the self-perceived intelligences of students to teacher nominations. Teachers nominated students considered dominant in one of Howard Gardners seven theorized intelligences. The students then verbalized aloud while ranking themselves using scenarios depicting each intelligence. Concurrent and retrospective verbal protocols were taped, transcribed verbatim to text, coded, and analyzed. Results indicated a strong agreement between teacher nomination and student identification of Gardners intelligences. More detailed studies should be completed before determining the validity and reliability of profiling such intelligences. Introduction Have you recently observed intellectual development in an elementary school classroom only to realize that many of the students therein appeared as intelligent as the ones formally identified as gifted? If your response was in the affirmative, then what follows may interest you.
