Textbook: A Basic Course American Sign Language (book) By Carol Padden, Terrence J. O'Rourke - T J Publishers, Incorporated - 1994 - Paperback - 288 pages
ASL American Sign Language - 2
Students must already know the manual alphabet, numbers, and be comfortable signing a basic introduction of themselves. As well as some knowledge of Deaf culture. This class will skip the first 5 chapters of the college text and aim to complete the 22 chapters, as well as attend a Deaf event in the Spring. The pace of the class will be customized to meet the students where their skills are currently at. I hope to increase vocabulary, dialogue conversations as well as knowledge of Deaf Culture and Community. Students will practice receptive and expressive skills. A presentation of interpreting scripture or a Christian song in our class will be required. A notebook, paper, pencil will be required for handouts,tests and to study from. Approximately 30 to 40 min. outside class will be required for study. Continuing students from last year will be given priority registration.
