How to Enroll

This course is an introduction to American Sign Language, introducing non-signers to the handshape, palm orientation, location, and movement of common signs, as well as the linguistic principles of ASL.  In this course we will 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 have no knowledge of Sign Language to the point where they can function comfortably in a wide variety of situations in the Deaf Community.  The course of study will focus on vocabulary and sentences for introducing oneself, exchanging personal information, talking about surroundings/giving directions, telling where you live, talking about your family, and telling about activities.
