CSUS Summer ASL Immersion:  2013


Dear Students,
Hello :)
This email is to encourage you to get your textbook for the CSUS Summer ASL Immersion as soon as possible. 
If you are within driving distance you should get your book from the CSUS Bookstore. 
For operating hours and such, see: http://www.bkstr.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/HelpStoreInfoView?langId=-1&storeId=13528&catalogId=10001 (or google "csus hornet bookstore").
Prior to driving you I encourage you to call the bookstore at (916) 278-6446 to confirm that there are copies of the text available and sitting on the shelf.
You may order your book from whatever source you would like but I recommend you order directly from the publisher.  Information is provided below. 

Note: It is not a typo when you read that the "Signing Naturally" Level 2 workbook is used for the ASL 3 course.  The publisher originally included about twice as much information in the level 1 workbook as needed. So many ASL programs split the level 1 book into two courses (covering both ASL 1 and 2).

The publisher is in the process of splitting their level 1 book into two "books" one book each for ASL 1 and ASL 2. But the publisher hasn't yet renamed their former level 2 book -- which almost everyone uses for level 3.

Below I provide detailed instructions, but for your convenience here is the link that takes you directly to the text that we are using for the ASL 3 summer course at CSUS:


Here is a picture of the book:

Order right away so you can get the book before the course starts. When you get the book and DVD, you should try out your DVD right away in a standard TV-type DVD player to make sure it works.  There is nothing else to buy for this course other than that book and DVD.

Additional details on the textbook in case you need more information:

For the ASL-3 course order:

This continuation of the Signing Naturally series has added features such as Language in Action, more advanced vocabulary, and more conversational dialogues. Student DVD & Workbook Level 2 also includes noted ASL artists performing handshape stories, cheers and songs, poetry, storytelling, and legends. Now learning the advanced grammatical uses of ASL, students see how sign movements can be modified to change meaning; how and when facial expressions occur; and how body, head, and eye movements are used in phrasing and agreement.
