Language and Literacy Instruction That Makes Sense for Deaf/Hard-of-Hearing Students: Roles for ASL and English - 29439

This virtual, synchronous training will focus on how American Sign Language and emergent bilingual instructional strategies can enhance effective literacy instruction for students who are deaf/hard-of-hearing. An overview of foundational literacy components -- plus strategies to translate these components into applied lessons -- will be presented. Drs. DiPerri and Czubek will address literacy in a developmental context; therefore, the topics will apply to a wide range of ages and grade levels. In addition, elements of the Bilingual Grammar Curriculum (BGC) will be shared. BGC is a remarkable, new curriculum that has changed how educators understand language instruction for students who are deaf/hard-of-hearing.
