"Providing Feedback on ASL Texts"
Kristin Mulrooney, Linguistics
Frank Griffin, ASL and Deaf Studies
One of the key aspects of implementing the bilingual mission within the classroom is assigning and assessing compositions in both ASL and English. While most university professors have resources to improve their habits of providing feedback on English texts, there is less familiarity with providing feedback on their students' ASL texts and few resources on ways to do so.
This workshop will introduce participants to a variety of methods for providing feedback on ASL texts. From technical considerations to pedagogical strategies, participants will be engaged in a step by step process for providing feedback as an essential activity in improving students' academic discourse in ASL and critical thinking. Such work is critical as we increase our capacity for meeting SLOs #1 Language and Communication and #2 Critical Thinking.
