5 SEATS CAS - FIRST-TERM FRESHMEN Due to the visual nature of American Sign Language, students should note that instruction in the language requires the faces of students and instructors to be visible during classes and can also only be effectively managed in specific classrooms that are not too large in size. Because of this, the course may have to shift to a remote teaching modality in Fall 2021 depending on requirements for the use of masks and the need for social distancing on campus to address health concerns.
  Course Description
ASL101 is an introductory course designed to develop a basic syntactic knowledge of American Sign Language, including basic vocabulary and conversational skills using everyday situations as a context for communication. All classes will be conducted in the target language (ASL) to further develop receptive and expressive language development skills. The student will begin with visual readiness activities and then progress through a group of targeted lexical items, taught within meaningful contexts, that stress use of questions, statements, commands, and conversational rules, such as attention-getting and turn-taking. Basic fingerspelling skills will also be stressed. This course is designed to help the emerging signer develop basic skills and knowledge in American Sign Language and Deaf culture. This is a five-credit course intended for true beginners in the language with no, or very limited, exposure to ASL.
