In this vlog, a very brief clip from 1977 video is shared on how ASL should be taught in classrooms.

Very True ~ Ella’s SAME as nothing change ~ ASL get to going UP & UP! Enjoy your teaching year! Have a fun! =)

THAT! Yes, Ella has been saying exactly the same thing for over 30 years! The terminology may have changed, but the message is basically the same.
And yes, we need to support ASL so it is EQUAL to English in the minds of Deaf people and society itself!

Enjoy watch your video. Hope you and CSD have a good and wonderful school year along. I am sure your students will learn much more new things this year.

Wow! Much appreicated with this information. Ella Mae is one of my Deaf role mode. Thanks for showing this archive video of her. Bravo and keep this up, always enjoy your vlogs.

I wish I were young under Ella and Joey. I enjoy to watch them a lot.

I think both you, Joey, and Ella are inspiration people. I enjoyed watching the archive of Ella. I think it’s not a matter of one language being better than the other, or more favorable, but rather ASL becoming equal with English, a mixture of the two, and being able to transition smoothly between ASL and English.
Could not have said it better myself!
Thanks for words of inspiration!

I also want to emphasize Meghan St. Ledger’s comment; ASL becoming equal with English. In other words, bilingualism.
What Ella did was to advocate for English AND ASL in the classroom; while she did not explicitly state bilingualism, she made the connection early on. Good stuff and thank you for sharing.
