The American Sign Language alphabet is well know and the first step to learning a visual language. If you don’t know a sign, knowing the alphabet can take you a long way. This class gives you those foundation to ASL with learning a firm foundation. The alphabet hand shapes will be strengthened with repetition and name spelling practice. Learners will also be taught the ASL numbers 1-10. Many ASL signs are based on this hand shapes as well. In class we will be reviewing this hand-shapes and...
The students will learn both 26 hand-shapes to match the English alphabet and the ASL hand-shapes for numbers 1-10.
I am offering this class because learning ASL has become commercialized only focusing of the match up of words to sign. ASL is a real language and needs to be treated with respect and not as entertainment. As a 10 year learning, I have formal education and the passion to teach students from the perspective of a lover of culture and language. I graduated from college and became a full time ASL interpreter that has worked in different fields and been involved in ASL acquisition in students. Without gaining an appreciation of the culture, it just becomes appropriation.
Practice worksheets and videos will be posted.
I will provide downloadable sheets to show the hand-shapes for both the alphabet and numbers. I will also give online resources to utilize to continue learning.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will be practicing producing clear and accurate hand-shapes for the alphabet and numbers.
40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
