Class Experience

Students will:
*learn a variety of American Sign Language vocabulary words
*follow along with one of Aesop's Fables
*combine listening with signing

This style of read aloud is great for auditory learns who want to listen to the story, visual learners who can read along on screen, and kinesthetic learners who will enjoy participating with the signs.
ASL has been an interest of mine for as long as I can remember. Please note, I am not a sign language teacher or interpreter, nor am I Deaf, but I have completed two semesters of sign language courses, as well as ongoing self-study. As a public school teacher, I taught an ASL mini-course to middle school aged students, focusing on fingerspelling and vocabulary practice.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
The Beatrix Potter Collection was written before 1925 and therefore in the public domain, including all illustrations used in class.

Although we are not watching any videos during class, the BBC created animated versions of these stories that you might want to check out. You can also find audiobooks available for free online.
