* This is intended to be used for learners in G1 and up. This module may fit into a larger course to provide a broader content for the module as it is openly and freely shared. ASL (American Sign Language) is a visual language. Instead of verbal language, you use your body such as your hands and facial expressions. You can actually use ASL to communicate whenever you like, use it like your daily conversations.
This PowerPoint presentation provides a brief overview of Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) devices and focuses on the results of a case study conducted by an elementary special education teacher.
This is a speaking lesson plan that is great to use to introduce facial expressions. Facial expressions are important to study as they provide non-verbal cues and information. They can provide nearly as much information as spoken words do. They can be difficult to understand but when understood students can remain confident when interacting with others in English. This is a great lesson to introduce to upper-intermediate students that have been looking to develop a deeper understanding of English vocabulary in conversational contexts.If you want additional lesson plans and support, including teachers’ notes, be sure to register for a free Off2Class account.
