Manual Communication: Fingerspelling and the Language of Signs; A Course of Study Outline for Instructors.
Babbini, Barbara E.
The instructor's manual to manual communication, sign language and fingerspelling, (For student's manual, see EC 042 222.) is divided into two main parts. The first part consists of a general section with chapters on basic procedures and techniques of teaching, drills and remediation treatments, use of videotaping equipment, and teaching fingerspelling. The second part of the manual contains the course of study outline, which is divided into beginning-level and intermediate-level sections. The beginning section consists of 14 individual lesson plans with general instruction subsections, explanation of materials needed for the lesson, and word descriptions of pertinent signs. Aside from the preliminary lesson, two of these lesson plans focus on the teaching of fingerspelling alone; one lesson plan concentrates on the teaching of numbers, while 10 lessons are for teaching the language of signs and fingerspelling. The intermediate section contains 11 additional lesson plans (without general instruction sections), with nine lessons in the language of signs and fingerspelling which are coordinated with and based upon material covered in the beginning course. Lesson plans are designed to be covered in about 3 hours and include drill and practice material, tests to be administered, and other pertinent material. (CB)
