Visuals for Sign Language Teachers

More info.

Minimal Differences:

Select two pictures or animations that are different, in one aspect. For instance:

  • a man running - a man standing still
  • one chair - two chairs
  • many trees in a line - many trees in a row.

Download the visuals that you want to use, to your computer, copy-paste them to Powerpoint or some other presentation software.

Use the two visuals in class, to practice:

  • Reception: you sign, the learner(s) choose the correct visual, Yes, you can use more than 2 visuals for them to choose from!
  • Production: ask a learner to sign what he/she sees in one of the visuals - ask another learner to choose the visual that was described by the learner. If the wrong visual is selected: discuss why.   

Work in progress! More visuals coming, soon.
