They'll Never Forget to Bring Their ASL Binder Again!

Help me give my students space for them to store their materials for class! We can store our ASL binders in the crates and keep them in class so we always have them! No more forgetting materials!

My Students

Teaching American Sign Language is unlike any other subject. Not only do we learn a new language, but we learn about new people and a new culture. What's lucky for my students and I is that we are located in Southern California close to California State University, Northridge where many Deaf families/people reside. My students have daily opportunities to interact with Deaf people on campus and off! My students are a part of a diverse campus and adding ASL to their repertoire makes them more conscious and worldy, which makes for well-rounded citizens of our community!

I try to instill the passion of American Sign Language in all of my students, because it truly is a life skill that they can take with them even after high school!

Working with my students, I see their drive and their willingness to learn about others and I want to make sure they learn all that they can! I want them to be comfortable using the skills we've practiced in class and use them to make new friends with Deaf people and consider being a part of a the community as a Deaf Community Ally!

My Project

First, I feel that teaching organization is super important and an important skill to have in school and in life! In my ASL classes, we have an 3-ring binder where we keep our notes, vocabulary lists, assignments, etc. This binder helps keep all our ASL materials together and easily accessible! HOWEVER, many students forget their binders in their lockers or elsewhere and sometimes don't have materials they need on a daily basis. My classroom has limited storage, but with these materials (crates and table) we'll be able to store our binders in class!

This will greatly impact my students so they are able to proceed with our daily tasks, participate in classwork, and keep their materials organized so they will always have their ASL binder as a resource in ASL 1 and beyond!

The goal is for my classroom to have enough storage so students can walk into class, grab their binder from the crates, use it, and then very easily put them back into storage so they can have it in class for the next day! This will also help students to not have to worry about running to their lockers during passing period to grab their ASL binder because they forgot it and prevents them from having to carry an EXTRA binder in their already very heavy and full backpacks!
