Deaf Culture Lesson Plans

This set of deaf culture lesson plans was created by a group of educators at a 2011 Illinois Teachers of Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Individuals (ITHI) Conference Workshop. The educators were provided with deaf culture materials from the ISRC Library and given time to create the plans. If you have questions about the plans or would like to borrow deaf culture items from the ISRC Library, please contact us via e-mail ([email protected]) or phone (847-559-8195).

ASL Literacy Packets

Thanks to the phenomenal work of Illinois State University graduate student Afton Gillis, ISRC has ASL Literacy Packets based on seven popular picture books. Each packet includes descriptions and demonstrations of the signs in the story, and three literacy activities - including all neccessary handouts or manipulatives. You can view each packet as an e-book or download it as a PDF.

Data Collection Coaching

Many educators find it challenging to collect behavioral data on students while they are teaching.  ISRC provides coaching support related to data collection methods, and can also record behavioral data in the classroom at the same time as a teacher to compare for inter-rater reliability.  A data graphing service provides assistance in converting collected data into meaningful graphs and charts which can be used for data-based decision making.  If you are interested in data collection coaching, please contact us at [email protected] or (847) 559-8195.
