Class Experience

This class will be covering milestones made in the Deaf community throughout history. The information learned in this class will range from how ASL was developed here in America and to the rights that Deaf people had to earn in schools, life and even the workforce. The instructor will be teaching in ASL so the students should be able to converse in ASL easily as we will learn with lectures and activities. This class will meet once each week over a course of 8 weeks.

Want a section of this class taught by the same teacher but with a speech interpreter for those who are not fluent in ASL? Let us know!

Notes

If your student is slow at writing, it would be really helpful to teach them how to take and retrieve a screenshot in order to be able to take notes into a breakout room to do activities.
