rewarding. It is amazing what is being done for our fellow living creatures and
I hope it catches on quickly.

found within this site is very intersting. I spent about 30 minutes reading
through this site. I think it provides valuable information about chimpanzees
and communication between animals and humans. However, I would not say that it
has a lot to offer in a classroom setting beyond learnng about chimpanzees.

who is closest to humans in DNA. Washoe is an interessting subject . She
exemplifies the fact that there is a higher level of consciousness in the Chimp
than was ever imagined and this is made clear through her communication using
American Sign Language. Washoe can express feelings and emotions and
uncerstanding that most individuals never realized existed in a chimanzee. We
have much to learn from this research
throughout the story as written by the author.

that things as this occured, so I was quite fascinated by it. I learned a great
deal, and I feel other students interested in this topic, would also be
enlightened. The information is presented in describing a families life with
different topics so you just point and click where you want to brouse. On this
day, all of the links were up and working.

quality of the content was very good and also very interesting. I think that
this site could be very helpful in learning especially in experimental research.
This is a site the whole family can enjoy.
easy to get around.

and amazing. The Washoe Project is a 30 year project, the results are accurate
and complete. To learn from our "sibling species" which in turn, helps
developmentally disabled children is, to me, what research is really about.
Roger Fouts continues research in chimpanzee gestural dialect, conversation and
enriching the lives of captive chimps. I envy the relationship Roger and
Deborah Fouts have developed with these chimpanzees. It truly must be
to read and the website is easy to navigate through. The website has many photos
which would appeal to the children. The text is separated into short paragraphs
which include one question and Roger Fout's answer. The Institute accepts
student volunteers and the site gives an address where more information can be
information, and was very interested in proceeding with it. I believe the
quality of the content was excellent. I believe this site has a very high
potential effectiveness for enhancing teaching and learning. I believe students
that are going into a field with psychology with children will find this
influential. This is educationally significant.
users will find this site easy to get the information.
