Reading and American Sign Language: Strategies for Translation.
Burkholder, Kim
Perspectives in Education and Deafness, v17 n3 p6-8 Jan-Feb 1999
A hearing teacher for whom American Sign Language is a second language identifies nine strategies developed for reading and telling stories to deaf children. These include: ask obvious questions related to the story, portray written dialog as conversation, emphasize points by saying the same thing with different signs, and adapt the story to include aspects of deaf culture.
