ASL 102 - American Sign Language II


4 Credits, 6 Contact Hours (3 lec., 3 lab)

Continuation of ASL 101 . Includes: parameters; syntax; sentence types; facial expression and body language; sign space; pronominalization; nouns/verbs; time line; classifiers; pluralizations; deaf culture; and fingerspelling numbers. Also includes conceptual accuracy, modulations, sight line, lexicalized fingerspelling, contractions, direct address, conjunctions, model stories, history of sign, language variations, sign continuum, and how people hear. Because language and culture are inextricably linked, this course will also demonstrate how ASL conveys the values, beliefs, customs, and history of American Deaf culture.

Prerequisite(s): ASL 101  with a grade of C or better.
Information: Students will be required to perform an additional 10 lab hours outside of the regular classroom schedule. This lab experience is designed to provide a “signing only” environment for students to practice classroom skills with Deaf tutors; expose students to communication in a Deaf environment; and provide students with real life exposure to the Deaf community. This class is conducted primarily without voice.
Gen-Ed: Meets AGEC - OTHER and C; Meets CTE - A&H and C.
