with Carol Sturtevant, Mid-Maine Regional Adult Community Education

Jan 18, 2017 at 5 pm, runs for 16 weeks

This course will emphasize the basics of American Sign Language (ASL) and is appropriate for students who have little or no previous knowledge of ASL. It is also appropriate for students needing diploma credit or credit recovery. 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, visual-gestural skills, and grammatical non-manual skills, in order to provide competence in communication. Students will practice receptive and expressive appropriate activities, as a component of successful communication. A textbook will be used to offer a wide range of vocabulary and cultural aspects of the language.
