Mayer, Connie; Akamatsu, C. Tane
American Annals of the Deaf, v145 n5 p394-403 Dec 2000
A study involving three children who are deaf (grades 7-8) investigated the ways in which American Sign Language (ASL) and English-based sign allow for comprehension of text content. Retelling, proposition, and feature analysis scores indicate students understood the fable texts whether they were presented in ASL or English-based sign. (Contains references.) (CR)
