San Diego ASL Teachers Association

In case you missed it, here is a recording of the ASL Curriculum Panel that took place on May 14, 2022.

SDASLTA had a panel discussion on ASL curriculum with the panelists, Leisa Boling, Missy Keast, and Marika Kovcas-Houlihan who have experiences in producing course materials with lesson plans. The panel moderator, Garrett Bose, asked the questions. 

What was your experience in developing a curriculum/ lesson plan to teach ASL? Why were you interested in doing this?

From your experience, what change have you seen that actually improved education?

What advice would you give to teachers in creating a curriculum/ lesson plan from scratch or making a great addition to it?

When creating a curriculum, how did you set learning topics in order and divide them into each course level?

What defines a curriculum? Why may textbooks/ course materials not be considered as a curriculum?
