    I would like to learn along with my PK4 students how to
    sign the song "What A Wonderful World" & maybe do it in our
    end of year program. I've only found a few videos, which
    were included in sets (too pricey for me). I saw this done
    several years ago in a workshop, beautiful! I do not know

    ASLonDVD.com Dear Kristy,

    ASLonDVD.com offers many sign language songs on DVD. The DVD's have recieved noteworthy praise.

    LIBRARY JOURNAL recently said, "... highly recommended for all U.S. school and public library collections." (LJ 7-15-08).

    BOOKLIST says, "Simply, but elegantly, Hayden Riley... impeccably signs... The program is u...See More

    Tomorrow I will have a deaf student join my fifth grade classroom. I would like ideas of how to promote a comfortable relationship with the class. Ideas, should I use name tags to help with introduction.

    TWL Children tend to question or make fun of things they do not understand. If the student (and parent) are willing have him/her and the teacher of the deaf (or interpreter) give a talk about deafness to the class. If the student uses any assistive technology such as an FM system please share it as well. Many deaf students do not sign, if they are in f...See More

    Hello! I am teaching ASL for the first time at our high school. I was wondering what sort of testing other teachers do is ASL 1. Thanks!
    Hello, I am looking for anyone who can provide assistance to me writing an ASL curriculum for my school. I am starting a new course this year and plan to use the Signing Naturally series along with some other resources, such as Movers and Shakers for some Deaf history. Any ideas for curriculum and lesson plans would be great! Thanks
    Does anyone know of a final examination that can replace the ASL regents? I have a student who has 1 unit of French, passed the profiency but then took 2 years of ASL (1 & 2). The school will not give her an advanced regents.

    Thanks.

    OK I am hoping that maybe someone else will find this site
    that is also Deaf and teaching hearing students.

    I am getting very frustrated with the hearing students I
    am teaching. They get mad that I can't hear them so don;t
    respond when they call my name over and over and over
    again. I have told them...See More

    My principal this year is very good about it, he has said I can have
    whatever I need, we moved a smart board into my room but
    unfortuantely it isn't hooked up yet so I am still using the white
    board. My principal last year refused to even try to look my
    direction when talking to me making it impossible to sp...See More

    Hello All-
    Can anyone direct me to someone that can help me
    with an afterschool program in RI for grades 6 and below?
    We want to start a sign language club to encourage the
    kids to speak with a hearing impaired student at the
    school. Here is the story behind it...

    Hi Staci,
    Don't know of anyone in your area, but the club is a great
    idea! I'm currently studying ASL & am really enjoying it:)

    You might try contacting these people & seeing if they know
    anyone. (Deaf community is a big part of residential schools
    for the Deaf.) I just googled residential schoo...See More

    Staci,
    Also check with various churches in the area that has a deaf
    ministry. See if one of them is available to do a club at
    school. Videos are easier than books when trying to learn
    signs independently. Check your public library and encourage
    them to order some DVD, videos, etc.

    A friend of mine has a deaf daughter who attends regular
    school. Everything was fine until middle school this year.
    One interpreter is also the hearing impaired teacher and
    special ed case manager. The relationship between student
    and teacher/interpreter has been strained and is getting
    worse. The studen...See More

    Roles of interpreters and teachers are different. You can check
    out the RID website for information about interpreters. In my
    state, PA, any special education can teach deaf/HH students in
    public school regardless of training in ASL. Which is
    amazing...Has your friend looked into attending a deaf school.

    Finally got the ASL fonts to work on my home computer. I
    can type up worksheets, print and use in class. HOWEVER...
    can't send emails yet in ASL.
