Hooray! This project is fully funded
Fairfax H.S. has approximately 25 Deaf and Hard of Hearing students who are mainstreamed with about 3,400 hearing students. American Sign Language is offered as a foreign language and is vital in fostering better communication on campus between hearing and Deaf students.
ASL (American Sign Language) is primarily taught through the viewing of videos and movies. I am currently using a very old, borrowed VCR (mine was stolen last year) to show sign language videos. Many of the newest materials for teaching ASL are on DVD. I also use a lot of captioned media for my Deaf students. More and more of these materials are available on DVD only. A VCR/DVD player would be hugely beneficial to all my students!
