My ASL Book: A Communicative Approach for Learning a Visual Language helps students learn how to communicate and interact with Deaf people in a variety of settings and contexts. This text offers hearing students the tools for success in building relationships with Deaf people, developing fluency in ASL, and enhancing awareness and knowledge of Deaf culture.
My ASL Book gives students a better understanding of how to use the different modes of communication — speaking, signing, gesturing, using facial and body language — to become a better overall communicator. American Sign Language is a complex, modern language that is just as challenging to learn as any other language.
My ASL Book uses three elements to teach students how to communicate in American Sign Language:
- Printed information describing different aspects of ASL and Deaf culture.
- A website, My ASL Tube, with many videos that demonstrate real-world sign language communication among Deaf and hearing people.
- Photographs of individual signs and phrases for reference and review.
This enhanced learning package actively involves students to participate in practicing their new language through the interactive website. In addition to video demonstrations, there are classroom activities, presentations in PowerPoint® format, chapter quizzes, exams, and instructor resources
