Thank you for sending me this message for the List. I am posting it here so the List can read it. And I absolutely promise I will get to helping you with your wonderful project in the UK. It has been a tremendously busy week, but I am enjoying all the progress being made around the world...
And congratulations on setting a date for your UK workshop. I plan to discuss this shortly on the List and to focus on your new BSL literature!
List members ...please read Maureen's message below:
Hi Valerie and Dali Balti and all..
As I am an absolute beginner in SSW.. What are the Literal words to Tunisian Lord's Prayer.
Is it possible to have the words underneath the writing.. ? or to the top Left corner....???
One of my ways of Teaching : Make laminated sheets.. of the words and Signs/ Symbols/ SSW
People learn quicker when they see the 2 together..
Ive found that in general , people prefer that When learning B.S.L if the word and the sign picture are together they make great progress.
and Iv e made teaching/learning aids for them..
Perhaps it is so the SSW..
Suzanne has started making SSW sheets of Topics as resources for our workshop and we are having both together.(SSW and word) .... then just SSW .... then just the words..
so that a 3 section teaching/learning aid is made.. Its then like a game... we all love games..
These will be laminated and velcro piece put on the backs ... be sure that the" Word only" sheet has the smooth bit stuck on..
the front in the centre of each segment.. and the others have the needles side stuck on the backs... then you have the Word and SSW gripped on the each Word.. to be learnt ..
then these are taken off..... and the Right SSW is found to place on the Right Word.. (you have the ...SSW and word as a Check to see if you are right. )
I hope you understand my explanation..
Best wishes to all.. Maureen Doyle ( Southport. )
