This title, featuring two original ASL narratives by Ben Bahan and Sam Supalla, are covered in depth through classroom analysis and use of the student videotext. Linguistic and cultural notes in the book provide readers with background information leading to greater appreciation of events in each narrative. Used in tandem outside of the classroom, these tools enhance ASL comprehension.

Ben Bahan's fable, Bird of a Different Feather, is about the different-looking bird within a family of eagles. Instead of accepting the bird's differences, the eagle family tries to apply a pathological approach to raising it. This is an odyssey familiar to many Deaf people.

In Sam Supalla's For a Decent Living, the protagonist is a deaf boy on a journey to find his deaf identity. Escaping from his unsympathetic hearing family, the boy faces the continuing dilemma of proving himself to his family, the Deaf community and society at large.

DVD bonus features treat viewers to interviews with Ben Bahan and Sam Supalla as they share the importance of storytelling in ASL. Viewers are able to watch the narratives Bird of a Different Feather and For a Decent Living uninterrupted and in their entirety. As an added benefit, bonus clips on the Teacher's DVD contains voiceover and English subtitles. The Student's DVD has voiceover and subtitles for the interviews. [Sam Supalla and Ben Bahan; (2007) Workbook: 208 pages; soft cover; DVD: 120 minutes; no voicing or audio] DVDs not returnable once opened.
