Hero and Project Description: 

Newsom-Wuertz’s and Parker’s innovative teaching idea, “Peer to Peer Teaching,” focuses on supporting student's second language development through the use of video production, website creation and peer to peer teaching and learning. Students involved in the project will work to design a website and materials that connect to American Sign Language (ASL), deaf culture, and deaf history. The learning involves the individual exchange of abilities, experience and communication in order to create a final product. With the Voya grant, students will create a website of information showcasing what they have learned while using authentic community signers. The website will be shared to help inspire and increase proficiency in ASL programs throughout the country as resources for authentic, native signers can be limited.
