My former work wife, the incredibly beautiful and loving Lauren, and I created a series of videos in American Sign Language to instruct and inform. That practice has started up again this year with my new work wife, the incredibly beautiful and loving Oni. How lucky I am to find myself surrounded by such dazzling, strong, and caring women year after year.
The latest incarnation of ASL videos takes the form of parent newsletters, which we place on our class page. The newsletters are presented in English and ASL to provide options and accessibility for every parent and caregiver. We write the newsletter together detailing the teaching/learning taking place in the classroom and then Oni weaves her magic on video (see below).
One of these days I look forward to starting up again with some instructional videos on ASL and providing literacy tips for parents. What ASL lessons would you find interesting?
