I used to use AOL's chatrooms to teach when I was first starting out. Bill "Having searched for a great comprehensive text to teach ASL basics, Deaf Culture and etc., I believe your work exemplifies this. I only wish I found your website a couple of months ago, so I could have processed my book order with your text and videos for ASL III and IV (yes, sadly, much of what you exemplify in your ASL I and II, students have not demonstrated a knowledge or mastery of, by the time they complete ASL I and II in our local colleges...
I am also interested in finding the best ASL dictionary to go with the book for their learning benefits.
The book I've taught a few times is mixed PSE/ASL which most students have taken so it is with a desire to help start the early generation based on ASL teaching only, not PSE mixed for better awareness or pictural understanding.
The class(es) will start early this month which is kinda time-constraint for me so your quick response would be greatly appreciated. book sounds fantastic - would it be an appropriate teaching/learning tool book for these age-groups?
If it is, will I be given a discount for ordering in bulk (maybe 12, or 15 or perhaps, 20)?
I plan to give the students surprise ASL material-related initiation for their effort so any ideas or suggestions will also be helpful.
: ) Thanks so much &God bless, Vicki, ASL teacher Hi Vicki, The kids would certainly enjoy the fingerspelling and number activities in the book. I put it together as a general introduction to deaf studies/ASL/fingerspelling for my community ed classes.My suggestion would be to purchase one book then if you like it you can buy more for your students.If you feel the book isn't something you want to buy a bunch of but simply want to use a few of the handouts in the book I give you permission to make copies of the various handouts to use in your class as long as you don't charge the students any more than you paid for the copies.Purple has an excellent reputation for providing the industry's best interpreters.Purple interpreters are available to interpret for any occasion or event.To request an interpreter please fill out the secure form below and a Purple representative will contact you shortly.
