A Curriculum for ASL: Empowering Students by Giving Them Ownership of Their Learning
Herzig, Melissa P.
Odyssey: New Directions in Deaf Education, v18 p70-75 2017
In response to the need for deaf and hard of hearing students to facilitate literacy in American Sign Language (ASL) and to put as much focus on developing students' ASL skills as they usually do on developing their English skills, Melissa Herzig has created a curriculum entitled "Creating the Narrative Stories: The Development of the Students' ASL and English Literacy Skills" that teachers of deaf and hard of hearing students may find useful. The learning theories that support this curriculum and the practices it delineates empower and motivate students as they develop skills in both ASL and English, the two languages they will use for the rest of their lives.
