American Sign Language 3



In this course, students advance the fluency and conversational skills they developed in American Sign Language 3. Topics covered include advanced expressive and receptive signing skills, advanced glossing of English-based sentences, sharing interesting facts, discussing health conditions, discussing religions, body, instrumental, element, locative, semantic, and body part classifiers, seasons, storytelling, ratios, describing accidents, explaining rules, and mouth morpheme usage.

Completion of this course requires regular access to a laptop or desktop computer with working microphone and webcam, as well as a reliable internet connection.

This Fixed-Paced course incorporates a blend of synchronous and asynchronous elements. Students and teacher meet live via zoom on a regular weekly schedule. In addition, students complete coursework including guided readings, interactive videos, text and video-based discussion threads, problem sets, individual and collaborative projects, and so on. While these activities are time-flexible, teachers sequence them with weekly deadlines to help students keep on track and encourage and support the development of productive time management skills.
