Developing Communicative Competence

Grade Level: Div. 1

Task: Effective communication is an essential component for both teaching and learning, yet it is often something that is taken for granted.  In this deaf and hard of hearing classroom, establishing communicative competency amongst students was imperative for their success.  Through this inquiry, students were invited to further develop an understanding of how to effectively communicate using American Sign Language and Facial Grammar.  The transformations seen in the students were remarkable to both teachers and parents alike.

Discipline Area(s): Language and social development
