DONIPHAN — A lesson is best learned with a hands-on application and that's exactly what Doniphan-Trumbull second-graders got Friday morning.
Beth Adelson, a Hastings Public Schools teacher for the visually impaired, visited the D-T elementary school and taught the students about Braille, which was developed by French teenager Louis Braille in 1824.
Teacher Brenda Herrmann coordinated Adelson's visit, a presentation for students in Herrmann's and Lisa Happold's second-grade classes. Herrmann said she could tell the students were engaged, highly interested and eager to learn about Braille.
The lesson about Braille came during the same week the second-graders learned about Helen Keller.
