Teaching Tool and Resource Jul 25, 2005
I use this book to teach an adult sign language class. After the class, students keep their book as a great resource. The chapter divisions are broken down into comprehensive categories -though some are a bit long. For each sign, a picture of the sign is shown as well as a written explanation. Many also include the "idea" behind the sign. A brief history of sign language is at the beginning of the book.
Oldie but a goodie Mar 13, 2004
This book is old and getting out of date, but is is divided into workable sections, give good syntax information and the hand movement diagrams are very clear. I use it for teaching sign to deaf animals.
Out of Date Sep 18, 2002
I got this book as a teenager. After I grew up and went to college and learned sign language both in class and from my friends, I was forced to unlearn most of what this book taught me. It is way, way, out of date.
