Since we are using American Sign Language as our foreign language credit, it is important that we make it the equivalent of a high school or middle school class even though this is a content based course, and not based on credit hours.
From September to November the girls worked in a class setting every Thursday evening for 2 hours and completed American Sign Language I. Last year was also ASL I but this year was a challenge, being immersed in a language and into a class with adult learners. For the purpose of simplicity, I am calling this ASL I rather than II.
They completed the textbook The American Sign Language Phrase Book with DVD
The class went on hiatus until the first week of January which is pretty typical for us. Take December off, remember? But I did not want a six week gap even though it will not show on their transcript. Their teacher, who is also the mother of one of Grace’s best friends, agreed to teach the girls in a fun, informal class during the break.
