Designed for use as a classroom text, Signs of the Times is an excellent beginning contact signing book that fills the gap between sign language dictionaries and American Sign Language texts. The book presents 1,185 signs organized into 41 lessons. Each lesson contains clear illustrations of all vocabulary, English glosses and synonyms, sample sentences to define vocabulary context, and practice sentences to clarify sign language usage. Signs of the Times is a complete text that includes suggestions for teachers, an appendix of conceptual signs, an extensive index, and a reading reference list. Mind ticklers enliven the lessons with hints, tips, and mnemonic devices.
The content of each lesson makes Signs of the Times an easy text to use. The unique feature of the signs being repeated in the sentences throughout the book provides excellent practice opportunities for students. The large, clear illustrations should make the learning process successful and fun.
