dc.description.abstract Motivation is one factor which can influence second language learning. Research on second language learning and motivation influences instructional practices. In this review classic defInitions and aspects of motivation, including integrative and instrumental motivation, will be revisited. Through existing second language learning and motivation research, different instructional theories and strategies have been used and developed over time for the classroom. However, little research into motivation and learning American Sign Language (ASL) exists. Therefore, this paper wi11look into the research that has set out to study motivation and learning ASL. In addition, research centered on motivation and second language Learning in other languages will be reviewed in order to make comparisons to learning ASL and parallel the experiences. From this review, learning and instructional strategies will be applied to ASL. en_US
