Advanced Conversational American Sign Language

LANG 291
Spring 2021
Section: 01  
Course Cluster and Certificates: Disability Studies

Having completed course work in Beginning ASL I & II and ASL and current issues, students who have demonstrated a strong interest in continuing their studies at a more advanced and challenging level may find this course work challenging and interesting. Signers at this proficiency level demonstrate that their comprehension and manual expressive and receptive communication skills are adequate with familiar topics, but frequent rephrasing and repetition is attempted when trying to express more complex topics. The class will be instructed in ASL only. Students will be required to speak only when "voicing" becomes part of the lesson/activity at hand. Sign vocabulary expansion will be an ongoing focus, as well as consistent attention to nonverbal grammatical features such as facial expression, eye gaze, clarity of signs, placement of signs in space, concept formations, ASL gestural alternatives, posture (expressive mode), and focus (receptive mode).
