This class was interesting because we were learning about a different culture. I had to think differently when trying to comprehend sign language. ASL grammar is different than English and sentences are worded differently. It was hard to go between both languages. This class helped me learn how to divide my attention to form sentences in my head in English, then sign them in ASL. I enjoyed learning with my classmates and Dr. Jones. I look forward to taking the second level in the fall. I will be incorporating ASL in my future special education classroom with students who are non-verbal.
An Example of my Work
This homework was designed to show me and have me become used to changing sentences in English to ASL and vice versa. At first, changing my English sentences into ASL gloss was difficult, but became easier over time as I had more practice and learned the rules for changing sentences.
