'AT&T BACKS COMMUNICATION AND DIVERSITY IN EDUCATION' PROGRAM SEEKS TWO PHILADELPHIA-AREA SCHOOLS TO PARTICIPATE

 BASKING RIDGE, N.J., June 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Care to partner with AT&T in the classroom this fall and use technology to foster an appreciation for diversity?
 The AT&T Backs Communication and Diversity in Education (ABCDE) Program is inviting two schools from the Philadelphia area -- one with deaf students and the other with hearing students -- to participate in this program. Based on lesson plans designed to help deaf and hearing students explore each other's worlds, the curriculum covers such topics as how sound travels and the workings of the telephone.
 By June 30, interested schools should write to: ABCDE Program, AT&T, Room 5130B1, 295 N. Maple Ave., Basking Ridge, N.J., 07920. Schools should include background information and reasons why the school would be an appropriate program participant.
 In addition to the ABCDE Program's weekly learning sessions, time is set aside for students to communicate with an electronic pen-pal or "buddy" at the "partnering" school. AT&T supplies each school with fax machines, two Telecommunication Devices for the Deaf (TDDs) and two computers equipped with AT&T Mail electronic messaging service.
 During the 1992 fall semester, AT&T partnered with the Marie Katzenbach School for the Deaf in West Trenton, N.J., and the William Halloran School in Elizabeth, N.J. The response from students, teachers and parents was so overwhelming that AT&T now plans to duplicate the program in the Philadelphia area.
