Content and supplementary material


How will you use what you have learned today?

To support pupils learning with improved knowledge of signs and methods of delivery in BSL.
Great discussions back at school to disseminate information and hopefully organise future inservice for staff, pupils, maybe community. Who knows?
Discuss use of BSL glossary with S1 hearing impaired pupil who I feel would benefit from use of this in science classes, and to explain concepts. Also discuss areas of concern with science teacher.
