Sally, what do you mean by "...a lot of time?" I just finished the 
blindfold portion of my COMS, so I'm not an expert by any means, but 
that course, plus Ethan give me a good bit of experience.

Ethan's saying his teacher didn't even make maps at the beginning of 
last year - his first in a new middle school. Since she hasn't called 
to schedule a time for going back over the school environment, I'm 
offering to take him up this week for a refresher in the 7th Grade 
halls, (if he can stand being with me to do that ;-))

Tactile mapping is not used a great deal in the workaday world, 
though, since most people are familiar with the routes they have each 
day. I believe it would be really useful if you were going to an 
unfamiliar place and wanted to give an overview, then, smaller and 
smaller areas within that larger arena.

Please, anyone else chime in, as well.
