Details: Homework assignments in this course will be diverse and based on classroom activities. Each week, students will have the option to engage in various forms of homework, including practicing their skills through provided links or uploading videos of themselves completing sign language assignments. Participation in these assignments is not mandatory but is highly beneficial for skill enhancement. Additionally, some homework may be accessible through Nearpod, for which no account creation is required. The intention is to offer students flexible opportunities to practice and reinforce their learning every week, although completing these assignments is not a requirement for all students.
