ASL I introduces students to the language and culture of the hearing impaired in the United States. The course will focus on specific language and cultural behaviors, as well as introduce students to the grammar of ASL. Both expressive and receptive skills of students will be the focus of the course, with a major emphasis placed on receptive skills. Students will participate extensively in interactive classroom activities. This course is designed for the student that may find the format and curriculum of a traditional world language course challenging.
Note: ASL II will be offered for the 2024-2025 school year. Successful completion of ASL I and II will meet Cardinal Gibbons and North Carolina World Language requirements for graduation.
