American Sign Language – Jeff Graham. Middle and Upper Grades
While the rudiments of ASL are taught: fingerspelling, vocabulary, and grammar, there is much time here for practicing not only expressive skills, but receptive skills as well. Multimedia resources allow students to practice watching videos by native deaf signers which help them build their skills. In ASL 1, we also learn about the use of classifiers, non-manual markers, Deaf History and Deaf Culture.
