ASL 2001 - Intermediate American Sign Language I 3 s.h.

Intermediate American Sign Language I will scaffold on the concepts acquired in Intro American Sign Language II.  This course will continue to simulate a “Deaf Community” via student usage of ASL and other various aspects that make up Deaf Culture. This is an intermediate level language course in Fingerspelling and American Sign Language. It will include among other aspects the study of hand location, rhythm, cultural loan signs, and the use of numbers in relation to context. Attention will be paid to theory and grammatical concepts as well as conversational fluency and aspects of Deaf culture. 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 Fall. 
Prerequisite(s): ASL 1001  and ASL 1002 .
