My students need a library of visual media like the ASL Superpack and ASL CDs to stimulate and increase their vocabulary. The literature will expose them to the culture and perspectives of the Deaf World experience.
High Schoolers grades 9-12 who can hear are learning sign language skills so they can communicate with the Deaf community and other signers and explore careers that utilize signed language. This is the first year students are being offered American Sign Language through the World Languages department of our rural community's high school. We are just starting out and need a classroom library to support our media and literary resources as we learn from Deaf and hearing sign language professionals.
Looking at an actual live language model beats a textbook any day. The ASL Superpack and ASL CD provide native signers accurately expressing signs with correct movement and appropriate facial expressions. Scrabble Slam, Numbers Bingo and Even Steven's Odd will all be played "WITHOUT VOICES"
The 3D geometric shapes, Shape and Color forms will enable students to build concepts in visual space as they learn to represent sign concepts.
The incredible array of short novels, biographies and narratives told across diverse cultures will introduce high schoolers to the differences found with the Deaf community and their similarities with hearing culture.
