The purpose of ASL 1 is to provide a foundation of signing production and comprehension. The first year students will be able to communicate and interact within the context of a variety of everyday situations such as family, school life, eating, shopping, and traveling. The first year goal is to develop the foundational semiotic skills to help students transition to year two ASL class. The first year of ASL will be the introduction of basic inquiry, following directions and developing elementary receptive skills after 8 units of instruction. Moreover, students will gain an increased understanding of Deaf culture, with specific attention paid to education in the Deaf community, development of assisted communication technology, and interactions between Deaf and hearing communities.
