I address interactional style differences of deaf students and teacher/interpreters in the area of culturally influenced learning and teaching styles, and the visually- and auditory-based approaches to learning and teaching. This area includes effective classroom storytelling and reading activities.
My current work focuses on the incorporation of American Sign Language facial morphology in storytelling traditions and typed/computer-mediated discourse.
