Akamatsu, Carol Tane; Armour, Victoria A.
American Annals of the Deaf, v132 n1 p46-51 Mar 1987
The effects of complementary sign language instruction on three measures of literacy were evaluated with six severely to profoundly deaf high school residential students. Instruction involved comparing American Sign Language and English, literal and figurative translation, and editing and grammatical English skills. Positive results have implications for bilingual-bimodal instruction. (Author/DB)
