Course Description:
This course follows Sign Language I A. The goal of Sign Language I B is for the student to become a confident signer by mastering American Sign Language grammar and building vocabulary. Lessons incorporate the various important components of signs including handshape, position, movement, palm orientation, and non-manual markers. The students vocabulary is strengthened by studying special categories such as lexicalized signs, classifiers, and topic-related signs. The student will learn to translate from Standard English into American Sign Language gloss. Videos and interactive websites provide abundant practice. A unit on Deaf Culture and Community provides a good perspective and context for practicing American Sign Language.
