The signing family : what every parent should know about sign communication by David Alan Stewart( )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,687 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Signing Family shows parents how to create a set of goals for signing centered around the needs of their deaf child, then describes in even-handed terms the major signing options available: American Sign Language, Signed English, Signing Exact English, and Contact Sign. Parents will learn how each of these signing methods originated and, in the case of English signing systems, why they were created and what they are meant to impart to deaf children. Parents will also learn their legal rights in the education of their child and how to work with schools to provide their sign preference in the child's classroom. Armed with all of this thorough information, parents can determine how each type of signing maps onto their goals for themselves and their child, both within the family and in the educational system
Language in motion : exploring the nature of sign by Jerome Daniel Schein( Book )

10 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in English and held by 658 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Language in Motion: Exploring the Nature of Sign invites readers on a journey of exploration into the fascinating nature of American Sign Language (ASL) and its relationship to other sign languages and sign systems used around the world. In a warm, conversational style, this enjoyable book first introduces sign language and communication, offers a history of sign languages in general, then delves into the structure of ASL. Later chapters limn the special skills of fingerspelling and assess the academic offshoots of artificial sign systems and their value to young deaf children. Once readers have become familiar with the attributes of ASL, Language in Motion offers for consideration the process required to learn sign language and to put sign language to work to communicate in the Deaf community, which is also described in absorbing detail. Appendices featuring the manual alphabets of three countries and a notation system developed to write signs complete this enriching book. Its delightful potpourri of entertaining, accessible knowledge makes it a perfect primer for those interested in learning more about sign language, Deaf Culture, and Deaf communities
E-Z American Sign Language by David Alan Stewart( Book )

Overview: This heavily illustrated, self-teaching guide to ASL-American Sign Language-is useful both for the deaf and for those men and women who teach or work among deaf people. E-Z American Sign Language presents ASL's 10 key grammatical rules and emphasizes the use of "facial grammar" as an important supplement to manual signing. Most of the book's content takes the form of a presentation of more than 800 captioned line drawings that illustrate signs for their equivalent words and then show how to combine signs in order to communicate detailed statements. Barron's E-Z Series books are updated, and re-formatted editions of Barron's older and perennially popular Easy Way books. Titles in the new E-Z Series feature extensive two-color treatment, a fresh, modern typeface, and more graphic material than ever. All are self-teaching manuals that cover a wide variety of practical and academic subjects, written on levels that range from senior high school to college-101 standards

Teaching deaf and hard of hearing students : content, strategies, and curriculum by David Alan Stewart( Book )

5 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The principles upon which instructional planning proceeds are applicable to deaf students at all grade levels; thus, the book is suitable for teachers at the elementary through high school levels. These principles are diverse but revolve around four central themes: 1) Creating authentic experiences; 2) Integrating vocabulary development; 3) Creating opportunities for self-expression; and 4) Providing deaf role models. When applicable, distinctions are made between the various instructional roles of teachers in self-contained classrooms, resource room teachers, and itinerant teachers, as well as general education teachers who have deaf students in their classrooms."
Consistent linguistic input in the signing behavior of teachers : modified signed English by David Alan Stewart( Book )

6 editions published between 1989 and 1991 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The paper addresses problems teachers of the severely hearing impaired have in being bimodal (speech plus signs) English role models as well as in using American Sign Language. The project described in this paper centers around inservice training and in-class demonstrations of the use of a modified form of Signed English to provide a visual presentation of English as the primary language of the classroom. The typical signing behavior of teachers in total communication programs is illustrated through examples from a videotape. The major portion of the document consists of appendixes which serve as a manual for implementing a similar approach. Appendix a lists the 12 general goals of the Total Communication Project. Appendix b presents eight inservice lesson plans concerned with: (1) sign markers, affixes, and contractions; (2) facial expressions and body language; (3) body and gaze shifting; (4) fingerspelling; (5) classifiers; (6) locatives; (7) indexic referencing and localization; and (8) directionality. Appendix c provides a glossary of affixes and sign markers while Appendix d does the same with contractions. The final appendix lists 19 resources with descriptive abstracts. (Db)
