Description

Class Experience

I grew up with a Deaf family member. I learned the basics of American Sign Language at a very young age and found it incredibly helpful as I moved through childhood and into adulthood. I could communicate with other children who were clearly frustrated that no one either could or was willing to take the time and make the effort to interact with them. As an adult, I studied American Sign Language in college so that I could better communicate with the many deaf and hearing impaired members of my community. 
Homework for classes will be minimal, if at all. Students may have to work on developing sentences for a next class if there is a game to be played which requires them, but most likely, there will be no work outside of class time.
Handouts may be provided (via classroom post) for students throughout the duration of the course.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
It is possible that there may be discussions concerning signing about gender identification, pronouns, etc. in class. I will not go out of my way to teach specific lessons on these topics, but if a student asks about how to sign about these topics, I will answer those questions. Please be aware of that.
