Q: What is the difference between an ASL curriculum and ASL Content Standards?

A: The K-12 ASL Content Standards, which can be incorporated into the curriculum, will state expected grade-level goals for students. They will also have established benchmarks that will help ASL teachers ensure their students have the skills and knowledge they need to be successful in interacting with individuals in postsecondary programs and in the workforce in the future.

An ASL curriculum is a set of courses and their contents that specifies what topics must be understood and on which levels in order to achieve a particular grade or standard.
