Description of this Book

This international collection of research from the field of signed language teaching fills a gap in the applied linguistics literature. While signed language teaching has rapidly established an accepted place in the academic domain of second language teaching, pedagogy has widely been shaped by conventional practice, available teaching curricula, and findings from descriptive linguistic research. In general, developments in curriculum, teaching approaches, and assessment have been relatively unmediated by applied, empirical research on learning and teaching. Teaching and Learning Signed Languages contributes to expanding an emerging research literature on contemporary practices and issues in the teaching and learning of signed languages. Eleven chapters by authors in Europe, Asia-Pacific and North America address the following themes: Training of sign language teachers Contexts for sign language teaching and learning Application of digital tools at the research and teaching nexus Learner perspectives Effects of first and second language and modality in SL instruction Formative assessment
