A New Way of Experiencing American Sign Language and English
Our books with DVDs are a great opportunity to learn about ASL….from the most basic understanding of how the language works to an ideal supplement to any classroom.No book on its own, not even our unique product, will teach you ASL. For learning ASL, we strongly recommend classroom instruction with a Deaf instructor.Explore our website for some of the many things our books CAN do:•Give non-signers a window into masterful ASL storytelling, and the cognitive benefits that come from it.•Provide academic benefits for classroom teachers of both Deaf and hearing children. •Serve as a language bridge for children learning English as a second language, and make it possible for non-English speaking parents to share literature with their children.•Offer literacy development opportunities for children in the early years and increase a child’s ability to think visually.•Delight children who can not readily access literature with opportunities to truly enjoy books.•We’re working on developing activity guides and formal curricula for all the potential users of ASL Tales. Keep checking back for more teaching tools. in 2013.
