American Sign Language Projects EL
Through a multidisciplinary approach, students will learn how they can communicate with a Deaf friend, coworker, relative, or other signers. The online class will explore the life of famous Deaf citizens, the new technological advances in the Deaf community. The hands on project will consist of learning key vocabulary as well as facial expression, finger spelling, sentences, and even a song! Students will also learn about the history of sign language and Deaf culture. The goal for this course is conversational skill, through the use of demonstration, constructive feedback on proper hand shapes and motions, lots of classroom practice, understanding of the importance of word order, and confidence-building. This class includes an optional learning experience.
