ASL 1002 - Introduction to American Sign Language II 3 s.h.

Intro American Sign Lang II will scaffold on the concepts acquired in Intro American Sign Language I.  This course will continue to simulate a “Deaf Community” via student usage of ASL and other various aspects that make up Deaf Culture.  Throughout this course students will further their attainment of receptive and expressive understanding of additional basic concepts of ASL.  Additional concepts to be covered will consist of imperatives, plurals, using numbers with time/age/objects, personal pronouns incorporating numbers, use of SELF as a personal or reflexive pronoun, noun-verb pairs, using subject as topic, sentences with modals, use of HERE/THERE or THIS/THAT, verbs that incorporate location, FINISH as a conjunction, existential HAVE, facial grammar, surrogating, markers, classifiers, quantifiers, vocabulary, fingerspelling and visual aspects that encompass the language. Students will also continue to acquire and demonstrate an understanding of Deaf Culture and Deaf Gain (evident in both the language of ASL and through video viewings featuring members of the Deaf Community) as various aspects of Deaf life are discussed. Pass/Fail Option. Offered every other Spring.
