Description

Class Experience

Over 20 weeks students will gain a basic ASL education. Students will learn new ASL vocabulary and information about ASL. 
I love American Sign Language and I enjoy teaching this beautiful language.  I have taken 4 years of formal ASL classes. I have also taught middle school ASL in a traditional classroom setting. I was also a 1st grade teacher for a few years!  I also enjoy signing songs in ASL for different events.  I have been teaching on Outschool for a year and have taught over 500 students! 
When a hearing person teaches ASL they are not just about teaching individual signs but rather teaching the whole package of ASL and Deaf culture. ASL is not just a signed version of English. It is made up of facial expressions, body language, non verbal signs, grammar and Deaf culture. The culture and community is so rich with history and values that should be taught right alongside the grammar and signs of ASL. When learning  and teaching ASL we all need to honor the language and culture by learning every aspect.
Each week students will need to upload a video of themselves answering the homework questions for their video post. Also students will need to post in the discussion feed about the question introduced in the weekly video.    
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
The student will be assessed on their weekly video and discussion post, I will give each student feedback every week.   
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
No parental guidance is needed for this class. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
