Using ASL in my classroom has probably had a larger positive impact on my classroom management than any other strategy I have implemented. I love using ASL because it allows me to provide silent behavioral reminders to my students without stopping my lesson. There are 6 main signs I use in my classroom. The first two signs are signs my students use to ask me questions. The last 4 are signs I use to respond to my students or give them behavior reminders.
