Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Meet Rosina Day 1 of 3 - Section 5: Learning Sign Language


I created the experience of my students signing their name with Sign Language because I wanted to experience first hand the challenge of learning to sign.

This section is not needed to understand the key details of the informational text. It can be skipped and/or done at a different part of the day. I feel my students did benefit from it to help them develop their conceptual understanding of the challenge of being deaf.

What would I add to this lesson? I would add writing. I would ask the students to write about Rosina's challenge and how she responds to that challenge. I know I did it together with them and charted it on a large paper. But in doing this lesson again, I would have write. Their writing would have allowed me to see how well they were understanding her challenge and the way she was responding to it.
