ASL Extreme Makeovers: The Art of Personification
Trix Bruce

Learn how to "change yourself" into someone or something else. In literature, the technique of "personification" gives an inanimate object, a plant, or animal characteristics that make it seem "human." The object shows emotions and takes on human-like behaviors. You can use this technique in American Sign Language to "become" a flower, a butterfly, or even a book! Trix will demonstrate how to personify characters and shift roles within your story. You'll learn how to "become" a baseball, basketball, beach ball, bowling ball, football, marble, ping pong ball, racquetball, soccer ball, water polo ball, and more!
