Students signing up for this level have little or no sign experience. Topics covered include; Immersion, Learning ASL, the “Alphabet” and Handshapes, ASL parameters and signing space, introductions, and many other exciting topics. Students will begin to develop ASL grammar comprehension along with receptive and expressive skills at this level. Information on Deaf culture and awareness will also be integrated into this class.

CLASS DESCRIPTION

This class continues with the new digital TRUE+WAY ASL curriculum covering Unit 3 (Family and Relationships) and Unit 4 (Residences and Communities).

Examples of topics of discussion include; family, friends and pets, relationship status, employment status, life milestones, transportation, residences, and neighborhoods. Possible addition of Unit 5 (Scheduling) and Unit 6 (Good Times) depending on pace of class. Prerequisite: TRUE+WAY ASL 1a or similar coursework.
