The Signing Naturally Curriculum Series is the curriculum of choice for teaching sign language at every major college and university in the United States and Canada. Expect exceptional results in students' receptive skills which is the hardest skill to learn. Teacher Curriculum Guides & Videotapes - Levels 1 & 2 have a total of 17 Instructional Units with Overview and Objectives for each unit. All of the materials are ready for transparencies or photocopies for classroom handouts. Student Workbooks & Videotexts are included as desk copies if you order Teacher's Curriculum Guides.

The Instructional Units are organized in five sections to allow flexibility of teaching techniques:
-- Introduction shows how to introduce grammar and vocabulary in the context of a language function while staying within the target language
-- Sign Production section shows how to help students develop signing fluency
-- Extended Comprehension section enables you to present narratives that lead students to devise comprehension strategies and discern meaning from the overall context of a situation
-- Interaction section covers communicative activities that range from structured to spontaneous. This allows students to integrate what they've learned on a discourse level
-- Breakaways include exercises aimed at creating a language community in the classroom
