Class Information

Grades will be based on the following:

Projects/Tests are 40%. These are major assessments of the students’ ability to process and comprehend ASL.

Presentations are 30%.  These are the students’ ability to apply their skills in the target language.

Class/Homework is 15%. This is an opportunity for the students to practice what is taught in class without serious consequence.

Quizzes are 15%. This is a condensed form of measuring the students’ progress. It should highlight areas of strengths and weaknesses.

Tutoring times are reserved by the student. The best times are before school at 7 o'clock or during my scheduled lunch times.

Class Expectation!

“NO VOICE” Policy

No voice policy is a standard policy in ASL instruction. ASL is taught entirely in classes with a firm “no voice” policy. From the time you arrive in class, all conversation should be in ASL until you leave at the end of class. The classroom is a speech free zone for two major reasons: learning environment and cultural respect. Not only is it a classroom policy, it is also a cultural norm and custom in visual (sighted) world. Learning a language is not without learning its culture; they are inseparable.
