Abstract

Giving deaf children the power to bring the stories they read to life through drama and art is the core focus of this curriculum. Students learn how to advance their American Sign Language (ASL) through drama and art as reading strategy to help them to express and demonstrate what they read in the printed English. It also seeks to make their reading experience more meaningful, rich, and collaborative. Through drama and art, they see reading as a source of their imagination. This is only beginning to their journey to become lifelong readers
