One of the fun and special traditions enjoyed and shared by the Deaf Community is signing stories using Number or Alphabet hand shapes. In these stories, various hand shapes do not stand for the numbers and letters themselves, but are used as signs or gestures to convey concepts. They are signed in alphabetical or numerical order, and used in amazing ways to sign or act out a story.

Students must also learn about the culture of the people who use the language. The same is true for second language students of ASL. They should learn about the culture of American Deaf people. (Wilcox, S., 1989) References Wilcox, S. (1989). American Deaf culture. Silver Spring, MD: Linstok Press.

The Door to the Deaf World Why do we need to learn about the culture of the Deaf when we are learning ASL? Why is it important for ASL students to understand and do ASL Storytelling? Classifiers are not used in the English language, and this may be why English structures interfere in the second language student's utterances in ASL. Fluency in the use and comprehension of classifiers is one mark of ASL competence. Because of this, activities using classifiers should be included at all levels of instruction. (Wilcox, S. 1989)
