 Product Description

This title, featuring two original ASL narratives by Ben Bahan and Sam Supalla, are covered in depth through classroom analysis and use of the video and text outside of class. Linguistic and cultural notes in the book provide students with background information leading to greater appreciation of events in each narrative.

American Sign Language (ASL) students can study and appreciate full-length ASL narratives through the ASL Literature Series. Literature is widely viewed as the mirror of a community's language and culture and is a vital component of any foreign language curriculum. With literature, language students have an unparalleled opportunity to study how a language is used and how it reflects the culture of the community. These materials are widely utilized in many ASL programs, literature classes and Deaf Studies classes across the U.S.

The Teacher's Guide with accompanying DVD provides opportunities for classroom study of comprehension, literary analysis and significant linguistic and cultural aspects of the ASL narratives. Expressive skills are also enhanced through retelling of the two narratives.

DVD bonus features treat viewers to interviews with Ben Bahan and Sam Supalla as they share the importance of storytelling in ASL. Viewers are able to watch the narratives Bird of a Different Feather and For a Decent Living uninterrupted and in their entirety. As an added benefit, bonus clips on the Teacher's DVD contains voiceover and English subtitles. The Student DVD has voiceover and subtitles for the interviews.
