American Sign Language 263
Students continue to develop language competency across two modes of communication: expressive and receptive skills, applying more complex grammatical structures and vocabulary. Performance-based activities allow students to express themselves in ASL in practiced and familiar situations with increasing independence. Students continue to explore Deaf culture in new contexts, as well as make comparisons and connections to their own experiences. Participation in the Deaf community is a key component of the course. Communication in the classroom (teacher-student and/or student-student) takes place primarily in ASL.
