Hi everyone!  I am in ASL level 3, and recently finished teaching a series of ten ASL classes at my local library.  I did this in order to make the resources to learn available to my community, since there are so few actual classes that exist.  I taught a variety of different signs, from emergency signs, to verbs, to food signs.  It was a very rewarding experience, and I highly recommend anyone who is considering entering a career in ASL to try it out.  Even just teaching the alphabet and basic conversation signs could make a huge difference.  I am posting my powerpoints, and packets (which include pictures of all of the signs, crossword puzzles, and sentence practice for participants to take home) here, in the hopes that someone can use them to continue teaching themselves, or to teach their community some ASL.  Enjoy!

    • Here's one of my favorite stories to tell. Notice the role shifts and how aware I keep things at. Very important! Story: "I'm going to tell you a story. So a wood cutter goes to the forest looking for wood, well, trees to cut wood for winter. So he/she goes walking, stops, and sees a nice tree. So he/she gets the ax and starts swinging, hitting it, and says 'TIMBERRR' the tree falls. He/she watches/examines it and says 'nice', and he/she goes on and continues walking, and stops and sees a big tree! He needs this tree  So he gets his ax and starts cutting away. He/she says 'TIMBERRR' but nothing, the tree still stood. 'Hmm weird' thought the wood cutter. Again, 'TIMBERRR'. The tree wouldn't budge, nothing. So he/she searches online locates a tree expert and gives the expert a call. The tree expert answers 'Hi, need help?' Wood cutter replies 'Yes, I have a problem. There's this tree that wont fall.' Expert then says 'Oh really? Well that's weird. Let me go take a look.' 'Okay, see you later". Here comes the tree expert. He comes and sees the tree. 'Hmm, yes I see. I know. That tree is deaf", the wood cutter confused 'What??? The tree is deaf?' 'Yes, you need to finger-spell' 'Oh, okay..." so the wood cutter starts to sign at the tree 'T-I-M-B-E-R' and it falls!!!  Finished (The end)".
    • Hi Derrian, I also tried sending you a message but I couldn't. Sorry for my delay in the reply, I didn't recieved a notification that you commented.  I would love to chat with you sometime, hope we can fix this message thing somehow.   Irving.
    • I will give it a try. "Hi, I have three dogs and two cats. My three dogs names are. the first one is Edi, second one is Molly and the third one is Osita. My cats are. The first one is Mittens and the second one is Shredder."
