Cpt Hall's #PledgeofAllegiance in #AmericanSignLanguage on #InaugurationDay has rightfully seized our attention. In this thread, I want to analyse where this came from, what we can learn from it, and what we should NOT learn from it. Read more on this longish THREAD 1/20
When Cpt Hall starting signing, social media exploded with deaf people seeing fluency in her signs and wondering, as @NeilMcD did with his CODA son, if she was also a CODA. And she is! CODAs may grow up with a national sign language as one of their family languages @codaintl /2
Cpt Hall seemed to decide on her own to use #ASL (remember, sign languages are not universal- they are as distinct as spoken languages. The @WFDeaf_org estimates 200+ signed languages around the world. And only 50+ have been legally recognized. wfdeaf.org/news/the-legal… /3

@AnneliesKusters on stage at #wfd2019 presenting on the @MobileDeaf team on International Sign (IS). IS is a phenomenon that comprises a lot of strategies in various contexts. Image
The level of conventionalization depends on context. Formal, conventionalized IS may be used at e.g. #WFD, but vocabulary and conventionalization varies with different events and contexts. #wfd2019
IS includes #translanguaging, #iconicity, and attitudes when approaching communication. The more experiences you bring, the more resources you can use when communicating. Interestingly, many outside Europe say they struggle with IS. #wfd2019 #signlanguages

I am having the great pleasure of co-teaching a dual language summer enrichment course to 6th-9th graders on the southwest side of Chicago through my masters program @RooseveltU. For the English portion of our teaching, we are reading @djolder's Shadowshaper. 1/
