ASL 150 American Sign Language Literature* (3 Hours)
Prerequisites : ASL 122 with a grade of "C" or higher.
This course will provide introduction, discussion, and demonstration of literature in American Sign Language (ASL). The literature involves ASL Poetry, ASL Storytelling/Narratives, Deaf Humor, Deaf Folklore and other genres that have been passed on from one generation to another by culturally deaf people. Students will receive, analyze and retell a variety of ASL literature.
The American Sign Language (ASL) Studies sequence of courses has been developed based on the need for professionals and community members to develop conversational proficiency in ASL and understanding of Deaf culture. This program is intended as supplementary education only and does not prepare the learner to work as an interpreter.
