Today we started to use the website Asldeafined.com.  Each student has an account that was purchased by Dearborn Schools for use during the 2018-19 school year.  It is a great opportunity to learn new signs and to reinforce the signs we have learned in school.  Students can access this site from home too!

Welcome to ASL!

Welcome to ASL, or American Sign Language!  I am very excited to start a new language and a new way of thinking about a language.  ASL is a visual language and must be learned with your eyes.  Listening, therefore, must also be done with the eyes.  For that reason, very little talking will be done in class, either by the  instructor or student(s).  Make sure that your phone is put away for the hour, and not serve as a distraction.  I need 100 % of your visual attention when you enter this room.
