This book... adds a dynamic dimension to the teaching of English as a foreign or subsequent language, both for the teacher and for the students. Using ASL is a unique approach that supports the vocabulary an instructor is already teaching. It is not new material that will add to an already busy schedule. This book is a guide to a kinesthetic approach to learning the essential English vocabulary, along with aiding in effective classroom management.
This method... is unique by using handshapes to enhance the learning of ASL signs by allowing a teacher to produce each new sign more accurately. It also gives a teacher further confidence in using this tactile approach to teaching English vocabulary.
Over 250 signs... are included in this handbook to be used in the classroom, each with a simple illustration and description. There are also ‘Snippets’ of information that teachers will find helpful.
