Transcript of ASL Storytelling

ASL Storytelling and Literature ABC Stories Importance Poetry Number Stories Because ASL is not a written language, Deaf culture, history, and background have been passed down from generation to generation through storytelling. Telling a story using each of the manual letters of the alphabet. Common examples include using "A" for knocking, "B" for opening the door, and "C" for shaking hands. This type of story is similar to the ABC story.
It involves telling a story using numbers from one to any number. You can use different types of sequences such as 1-10, 0-5, 10-1, etc. Clayton Valli Just like in oral poetry, signed poetry has tempo, tone, emphasis, and rythm.

This helped distinguish the difference between English poetry and ASL poetry. References The Treasure. Dir. Lynette C. Taylor. Prod. Ella Mae Lentz, Cheri Smith, and Ken Mikos. Perf. Ella Mae Lentz.
