Course Description

In this course we will continue to examine the sign lexicon and basic concepts about the structure and use of American Sign Language. We will stress grammatical features along with syntax and structure. The course will examine Deaf culture, history, values, social norms and how they play an important role in the Deaf community. To appreciate and respect Deaf culture, you must understand the signed language. Students will learn appropriate cultural behaviors such as directing and maintaining attention, and a way of talking that keeps others informed. This course is appropriate for students who completed ASL 507 and who also completed ASL 3 (specifically Signing Naturally Level 1 and 2 (Units 14, 16, 17)) from other colleges. The course of study will focus on vocabulary and sentences for personal information about life events and for locating things around the house.
