K-12 ASL Content Standards Q&A
As educators, we are accountable for student growth in every area of learning, especially when language is involved. This belief helped drive the development of the K-12 American Sign Language (ASL) Content Standards, involving many teachers, practitioners, researchers, universities and schools, and organizations throughout the nation. The Laurent Clerc National Deaf Education Center provided logistics and coordination, as well as technical support, for this landmark work. This presentation will provide an overview of the K-12 ASL Content Standards and discuss expectations for use by educators. The objective is for attendees to gain an increased understanding of what could be involved with implementing the K-12 ASL Content Standards.
