NZSL level 1 curriculum is completed!
Posted on 29/01/2015
The TeachSign team is delighted to announce that units 6-9 is completed!
Today marks a significant milestone in the history of NZSL teaching. NZSL teachers now have access to a comprehensive (full) NZSL level one curriculum to teach NZSL to adults anywhere in NZ. These resources can be adapted to meet NZSL student needs. There are 9 fantastic units, complete with PowerPoint files, 150+ activity sheets and more. All at your fingertips 24/7!
Three years ago, Sara Pivac Alexander conducted a survey on NZSL level one teaching resource needs in NZ. Sara partnered with Victoria Lessing to carry out a scoping report in late 2012 and work finally started in 2013.
Unit 9 will be released in May to encourage NZSLTA members to renew their memberships.
