American Sign Language Network

2-Day Series for 2016-17

Workshop Series Overview

The Michigan Merit Curriculum recognizes American SIgn Language as a world language. Students may earn credits in ASL to fulfill the state requirement.

  • Are you the only ASL teacher in your district?
  • Are you struggling with writing a standards-based curriculum?
  • Do you need help developing a strong and successful program?
  • Are you willing to share classroom-proven activities that promote student success?
  • Are you looking for ways to improve your assessment process?

If you answered YES to these questions, then the ASL Network sessions are for you! These meetings are designed for all teachers who are currently teaching ASL. By attending these sessions participants develop a network of support as well as resources to work on curriculum, instruction, and assessment. Additionally, ASL teachers can request DPPD hours. Come share your successful experiences and learn from other ASL teachers. Participants are asked to bring a classroom activity to share to each meeting.
