|Course Cluster: Service-Learning|
Through this Service-Learning course, students will continue their language training in ASL while focusing on research and applications primarily outside of the Deaf Community. Combining the works of Oliver Sacks (cognitive changes from sign language acquisition), Howard Gardner (Multiple Intelligence Theory) and Marilyn Daniels (signing for hearing children's literacy), students will participate in adding this visual and kinesthetic modality to elementary school language arts programming. The use of sign language for children with a variety of learning disabilities will also be examined and applied through the course service component.
