Teaching ASL

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!

    • Hello all! I have been practicing ASL by myself for several years, and I can communicate in slow conversations. But having no one to practice with, I often lose momentum in learning. I would like to become an interpreter someday, or even teach. I was excited to find a community such as this one!
    • Are you going to be learning ASL together or do they have a headstart already?  There are a few ASL dictionaries, like Handspeak, also a lot of material on Youtube.  Google "ASL signs", set it to videos and youtube, and just start watching all the videos.  Take lots of notes to remember the signs.  Open a new notepad file and put in it all the site addresses, you will want to find them later.  look for specific videos on every subject, alphabet, numbers, verbs, time, animals, etc.  Make sure you
    • I have a grandparent who was diagnosed deaf last year. I really want to stay in communication with him so am looking to learn ASL sign language. I'm not sure where to start I searched some different apps and found one called Pocket Sign but I don't have an iPhone. I see they have a website https://www.pocketsign.org has anyone ever used it? do you guys have any android/website ASL learning resources to recommend?
    • I'll have to try some of these
