Class Experience

Learners will be introduced to the language of ASL and get to practice this skills they need to understand ASL, as well as being able to communicate and stay interactive in the session with a Deaf teacher. For three weeks, multi-day class goals will include the students being able to sign without using their voice throughout the entire class session, use facial expressions, use their body language expressions, and retain sign language in each class. 
Learners will need to look over and practice ASL Fingerspelling, Emotions and Colors with worksheets and videos that I will be providing approximately one week before our first class so that the learners can get a glimpse of what to expect in class.
Two to three pdf papers will be provided.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
I will conduct written reports for each learner along with a video assessment. 
1 hour per week in class, and no time outside of class.
I will be using a third-party service, however, the learners do not need to do anything and does not require anything. Slides will be used from Canva or Google, so the learners can have clear visuals through my shared screen via zoom. All the images and words will be used appropriately in the classroom pertaining to my ASL lessons, which is completely safe and secure created by the teacher, Ms. Contreras. Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. No videos will be added. Only images on the slides.
