EDS 53 "ASL Level 3" Students will expand their communicative repertoire developed in level 2 to talk about people and places in a contextually-reduced framework. Students will learn how to describe places, objects, and events. Students will also develop basic narrative skills to tell about past events. Through in-class discussions / demonstrations, and course readings, students will be exposed to elements of the Deaf community and culture.
● Signing Naturally Level 2 Student DVD and Workbook Price: $69.95 (+S&H)
[Yes, that is right, the Level 2 text is used for ASL 3 at Sac State. It is the textbook that covers units 13 through 17.]
You are encouraged to order this text prior to the first night of class. See ordering information at the materials link: "Materials" ►
● The online portion of this program is designed to help free up the in-person time to focus on developing your interactive communication skills, your grammar, your facial expressions, and your cultural awareness. The more "vocabulary" you learn online the more your in-person instructor can focus on interactive skill development. The online work helps you become familiar with and recognize much of the vocabulary that will be used during the in-class sessions. By investing time and effort online, you will be better prepared for class. The ASL 3 class will cover Units 13 through 17 of the Vista Signing Naturally curriculum.
Your grade will be based on the percentage you earn.
The letter grade scale is: 100-95%=A, 90 = A-, 87=B+, 83=B, 80=B-, 77=C+,73=C, 70=C-, 67=D+, 63=D, 60=D-, 59=F (no credit)
