Gallaudet University is quickly becoming my favorite resource for video lectures. They have speakers discussing everything under the sun.
Here’s one presentation that I thought would be very useful and informative for our Pathfinders who teach students in ASL.
Dr. Kristin Di Perri is an independent literacy consultant. The VL2 website describes her presentation:
“Research on visual language and learning for deaf children continues to underscore the necessity for a pedagogical revision in the way we teach English literacy skills. However, there is often a disconnect between research implications and the actual implementation of effective instruction. In this presentation, Dr. Di Perri discussed an interactive instructional approach for teaching English grammatical elements in a manner that maximizes visual information and retention/internalization of concepts.”
I don’t mean to fool you.
This presentation has already happened.
But you can watch it (as many times as your heart desires) online at http://videocatalog.gallaudet.edu/?id=14328.
This presentation is in spoken English with ASL interpretation and captions.
Enjoy (and let us know what you think)!
