    It started out as a Master thesis. Now it is a valuable professional resource book for any early childhood teacher who'd like to incorporate sign language into her/his program.

    A must for any preschool teacher serious about incorporating ASL into classroom activities. Dennis and Azpiri write from their own experience of using ASL in the classroom, and, though neither is fluent in ASL, they share their detailed curriculum. They provide a context for using the language by giving a basic introduction for beginners, then give copious lesson plans, on topics common to the early childhood classroom (weather, seasons, school, family, colors, community helpers, animals, feelin A must for any preschool teacher serious about incorporating ASL into classroom activities.

    Found quite a few applications for using this with kids who have learning disabilities and/or behavior issues. The chapters are straight-forward and clear. The images for the signs are easy to understand. The many lessons plans should be easy to follow. The emphasis on becoming familiar with Deaf Culture and the history of ASL is important.

    ASL inclusion in the preschool curriculum. Book looks useful for preschool teachers, but a bit more advanced/extensive than can be taught during my baby/toddler storytimes. The sign diagrams look easy to follow, however, and if I were a pre-K teacher, I would definitely take a second look at the lesson plans.
