I was wondering how many teacher of ASL as a second language are using Sign Writing in their classrooms?  I've been teaching ASL for 10 years, and have decided to add it as a regular part of teaching ASL in my high school classes this year.  I wanted to get feedback from others who might be doing this. Thanks!

Hello Natasha!
I was so delighted to visit this web page to see SignWriting mentioned there:


www.westlandasl.comI liked it too.  Did you all check out this link on Natasha┬┤s website? A lesson that makes use of SignWriting.Cities, Distance, Place - p. 82 & 83 http://www.teachertube.com/view_video.php?viewkey=a70c8d9fa6db300e20c9Good work Natasha!! :-) Jonathan



It is an attractive web site. If you need help with the SignWriting part of it, we will be glad to help you...

I am so happy to learn that you plan to use SignWriting as a part of teaching ASL. Reading and writing a language is an important part of learning a language, and can help new students remember what they learn in class.

We have more written American Sign Language literature now...which means you will have more reading materials for your students ...I am creating a listing of all of the literature on the web, and I will post that shortly, so you can download documents to use as reading material in class...or just visit the ASL Literature Puddle:

I do not know how many teachers use SignWriting as a part of their ASL classes. I hope more will follow your lead!

Val ;-)
