Best Known as The Garden Books, the American Sign Language books provide teachers and students of American Sign Language (ASL) with the complete means for learning the culture, community, and the native language of deaf people. A group of 15 ASL teachers and linguists reviewed all five books to ensure that they were accurate and easy to comprehend. Drawing upon linguistic research and the methods developed in the field of second/foreign language instruction, including their own resources and experiences, authors Baker-Shenk and Cokely have developed an interactive approach to teaching and evaluating ASL supported by numberous activities and techniques in a six-course curriculum. The continuing popularity of these teacher resources and course texts proves their effectiveness as unique guides on teaching Deaf culture and ASL, and learning to understand and sign ASL.This volume of the American Sign Language series explains in depth the grammar and structure of American Sign Language (ASL) while also presenting a description of the Deaf community in the United States. Written for teachers with minimal training in linguistics, it includes many illustrations, examples, and dialogues that also focus on specific aspects of the Deaf community.
