As more and more secondary schools and colleges accept American Sign Language (ASL) as a legitimate choice for second language study, Learning to See has become even more vital in guiding instructors on the best ways to teach ASL as a second language. And now this groundbreaking book has been updated and revised to reflect the significant gains in recognition that deaf people and their native language, ASL, have achieved in recent years.

       Learning to See lays solid groundwork for teaching and studying ASL by outlining the structure of this unique visual language. Myths and misconceptions about ASL are laid to rest at the same time that the fascinating, multifaceted elements of Deaf culture are described. Students will be able to study ASL and gain a thorough understanding of the cultural background, which will help them to grasp the language more easily. An explanation of the linguistic basis of ASL follows, leading into the specific, and above all, useful information on teaching techniques.

       This practical manual systematically presents the steps necessary to design a curriculum for teaching ASL, including the special features necessary for training interpreters. The new Learning to See again takes its place at the forefront of texts on teaching ASL as a second language, and it will prove to be indispensable to educators and administrators in this special discipline.

About the Author:

Phyllis Perrin Wilcox is Assistant Professor of Linguistics and Coordinator of the Bachelor of Science Degree Program in Signed Language Interpreting at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, NM.

Review:

This second edition of the work remains by far the best work of its type. It is cogent, well written, and provides a useful and important foundation for those interested in teaching ASL. It should also be of interest to those not familiar with the growing literature on ASL and the Deaf community, as well as for other foreign language educators.
