The Learn To Read American Sign Language series is
based on the video The SignWriting Children's Stories Series,
signed in American Sign Language (ASL) by Deaf native signer
Darline Clark Gunsauls.
It is a different way to learn SignWriting. The lessons start
with the first sentence in the children's story Goldilocks
& The Three Bears. One video frame from each sign is
"captured" from the video and placed in sequence down
the page in vertical columns. Each sign is given a number, and
the English "gloss" for each sign is written near the
number of the sign.
The instruction manual Learn To Read American Sign Language coordinates with Goldilocks Storybooks, Levels 3 & 4, which are the Intermediate and Advanced levels. It serves as a step-by-step explanation of the signs written in the storybooks.
The SignWriting symbols in this manual are in different colors:
