Every day, teachers face the time-consuming task of adapting materials from curricula that do not meet their students' needs or match their learning styles. This article discusses ready-made literacy units specifically designed for teachers of deaf and hard of hearing students. The units were part of the Cornerstones Project, an activity of the WGBH National Center for Accessible Media. (The units were developed with funding from Steppingstones of Technology Innovation for Students With Disabilities, a program of the U.S. Department of Education.) The Cornerstones Project built the literacy units around three animated stories--The Fox and the Crow; Click, Clack, Moo; and Joseph Had a Little Overcoat--originally featured on Between the Lions, a long-running children's TV program co-produced by Boston PBS affiliate WGBH, Sirius Thinking, Ltd., and Mississippi Public Broadcasting. Each unit is two weeks long, and immerses students in the language and ideas of one story. Students can download online video clips of each story (in Windows or Mac) in whichever communication mode they prefer--ASL, Cued Speech, or Signing Exact English (SEE). Free downloads are available at the Cornerstones website,
