Local high-school teacher communicates with blind students via sculpture. Matt Creabome, an art teacher at Crestview High-School, recently began using sculpture to assist blind students with such subjects as math and geometry. He got the idea by watching the great Spanish sculptor Rigo Rossi use his hands to count off measurements as he sculpted. “By using their hands, students can feel things like distances and spatial relationships,” Mr Creabome said. “This allows them to think abstractly, just like in geometry.” Mr. Creabome’s technique will be tried in several other schools this fall including three high schools for blind learners. According to Jim Miller, director for assisted student learning, Mr. Creabome’s methods should help visually impaired students match non-visually impaired students in terms of their test scores in mathematics. “We are looking forward to big improvements in test scores in the next few years,” Mr. Miller said.
