Students engaging in this course will experience a more advanced study of American Sign Languagen (ASL). This class continues with an interactive approach: developing sign; improving expressive and receptive skills; and gaining more awareness of the Deaf community. This course builds on skills previously learned by adding more complex ASL grammatical features and vocabulary, short stories, narratives, and dialogues. A key goal for this course is for students to achieve a level of competency in ASL. Students will expand on their signing skills through debate, exchanging information, and expressing ideas, opinions, and preferences in front of an audience inside and outside of the classroom setting.
