What message are you sending?

Today we bring you stories about how we communicate and, sometimes, fail to communicate. From why deaf students learn differently from hearing students, to what it's like inside the District's secret subculture of graffiti. Plus, we'll visit an island where residents speak an unusual dialect of English, and explore our schools' new approaches to talking about the birds and the bees.
