Title: Construct a Story

In this intermediate low to intermediate mid ASL activity, students will review ASL idioms and use them in context to create a story to share in American Sign Language. A Google slide presentation is included for teachers to use as they guide students through the activity. They will first watch a short video about idioms and how to sign some of the most common phrases. Students will then create a story using one of the idioms along with a defined character, setting, and plot.
