This course builds on the foundation of ASL I & II through an in-depth study of American Sign Language. Continued studies include the use of mouth morphemes, constructive dialogue, and constructive action in daily conversations and narratives. In addition, the students learn how to “describe” items/movements using ASL adjectives and adverbs, respectively. Strategies include the study of ASL language structures, “voice off” conversations, translating English into ASL, translating ASL into English, teaming/interpreting games, book reports, DVD lessons and stories, deaf guest speakers, performances in the KEYS Winter and Spring Concerts, and outreach activities.
There is no required text; however, the instructor will provide copies of necessary material as handouts for that particular class concept.
