Speech and Hearing Sciences | American Sign Language Level Two
A150 | 1633 | Murray, J.


PREREQUISITE: A100 or permission of instructor.

The course is designed for students with no previous knowledge of
American Sign Language (ASL).  During the course, students will
acquire basic ASL skills needed to communicate in a wide variety of
situations.  Classes are conducted in American Sign Language with
minimal use of voice and written communication. Deaf Culture is
incorporated throughout the course.  Students are asked to wear
nametags during class. With few exceptions, the class will be
conducted in sign language. If students have something to say to one
another, this should be done without using verbal speech. Each class
meeting assumes you have studied the appropriate unit and are
prepared to participate in the classroom activities.

Videotext and Workbook: The Student Workbook is your guide to be
used with the Videotext. You should read the instructions in your
workbook prior to viewing the Videotext. Workbooks will be checked
in class on the date stated on your course syllabus. Workbook
assignments will be graded on a scale of 1-10.  Workbooks must be
completed PRIOR to the beginning of class or the assignment will be
considered "late" and the grade lowered.  If the assignment is not
completed by the following class meeting, the assignment will not be
accepted for a grade.  It is the student's responsibility to ensure
late homework assignments are checked by the Assistant Instructors.

Course meets non-standard dates May 8 to June 7.
