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


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 ;-)
