Vocabulary Builders in Sign Language

The Described and Captioned Media Program (DCMP) is a leader in providing access to captioned, educational media. But did you know that they also offer many resources to promote access through sign language as well? There are over 100 titles in the DCMP collection on sign language. 


DCMP, in conjunction with Jacksonville State University in Alabama, produced a series of sign language vocabulary videos called: Vocabulary Builders in Sign Language. The videos are intended to introduce sign language that is specific to a particular class or subject matter, utilizing deaf professionals signing vocabulary related to their field of expertise. Topics include Science, Computers, English, Math, Psychology, and American History/Government. 


Don?t miss this opportunity to increase your sign language skills. You can view the vocabulary builders on YouTube, iTunes U, and through the DCMP collection. Visit their website today at www.DCMP.org
