Course Overview

This course introduces students to critical, academic discourse in American Sign language. Students will be given opportunities to analyze and evaluate academic ASL and to compose logical arguments by synthesizing information from sources with their own critical perspectives. The course has been developed using a Multicultural Education philosophy that advocates the belief that students and their experiences should be placed at the center of the teaching and learning process, and that teaching and learning should occur in a context that addresses multiple ways of thinking.
