Who Is Qualified to Teach American Sign Language?
Kanda, Jan; Fleischer, Larry
Sign Language Studies, n59 p183-94 Sum 1988
Teachers of American Sign Language (ASL) can no longer qualify just by being able to sign well or by being deaf. ASL teachers must respect the language and its history, feel comfortable interacting with the deaf community, have completed formal study of language and pedagogy, be familiar with second-language teaching, and engage in personal and professional growth and development.
