In this course, students will learn to understand and sign American Sign Language through practice, self-assessment, modeled conversations, and graded video activities. They will also build their social awareness to act and communicate appropriately with the Deaf community. Students will learn American Sign Language that is used in daily life, such as communicating about disasters, chatting about movies, and performing ASL jokes. This is the fourth course in a four-part American Sign Language series, which aligns to ACTFL and ASLTA standards.
