American Sign Language: Part II F17
with Carol Sturtevant, Mid-Maine Regional Adult Community Education
This class is a continuation of the ASL class offered in the spring of 2017. All material covered in the spring semester will be reviewed and practiced before new material is added. New students are invited to join the class. The course will emphasize the basics of American Sign Language (ASL) and is appropriate for students who have little or no previous knowledge of ASL. A study of the Deaf Community and Deaf Culture will also be emphasized, through the study of culturally appropriate behaviors and the historical aspects of the development and acceptance of ASL as a recognized language. The use of ASL in the classroom will be practiced by students and demonstrated by the instructor throughout the semester. In this way, students will develop beginning conversational skills. Students will be exposed to the following aspects of ASL grammar: basic vocabulary, fingerspelling techniques, numbers, syntax, gestural skills, and grammatical non manual signals, in order to provide competence in communication, through receptive and expressive readiness activities, as a component of guided communication. A textbook, a workbook, and various DVDs will be used to offer a wide range of vocabulary and cultural aspects of the language. Limit: 10 students.
