Video Description: "Geometry Through Geography". Students studied various famous monuments around the world, looking for examples of geometry. Paige, the student featured above, was a selective mute.

To learn more about what selective mutism is and is not, read an article I wrote with her mother titled, "A Voice on Selective Mutism".
