Class description


This is a rigorous course that fulfills the requirements for high school credit towards a foreign language.

In Sign Language 3: A Silent Class, students will further develop their ASL proficiency and dive deeper into deaf culture and history.  They will learn more about the role of the interpreter in the community, especially the role of interpreting in a church setting.

This course has a goal of developing receptive and expressive ability, that allows recognition and demonstration of more sophisticated grammatical features of American Sign Language (ASL), each class meeting will be silent (using only Sign Language to communicate). Students will also work to increase fluency and accuracy in finger spelling and numbers.
Sign 3 is focused on interpreting – both Sign to English and English to Sign.

This is an active course where students learn through doing, and being active.  Siblings and friend groups are encouraged to take the class together, so they can practice with each other.  Friendships form within the class as students get to know each other through conversation and interaction.

The applications of Sign Language are unlimited, and whether students dive deeper into learning and follow a path of working with folks who are hearing impaired, or whether they stop with taking a couple of semesters in school, and learn just enough to communicate on a basic level, they will be enriched through the study of a language that engages the mind and the body.

If your student has studied sign language elsewhere, I will be glad to assess his or her current skills and determine which class would be the best fit.

About the instructors

Hi. I'm Carroll Sue, and I love hearing about how someone made their dream come true. Success stories are my fuel. When I meet someone who doesn't know how to reach their own goals or even what those goals could be, I like to work with him or her to develop a path to Success. My husband, Philip, and I homeschooled and graduated our children, as well as others through the years. We have taught kids with no learning challenges, as well as kids with severe Dyslexia, Autism, and Developmental Delays. I teach two different course paths here: Sign Language and Business. Sign Language is my Life-Long-Love. I took my first Sign class when I was 6 years old, and just kept learning more and more each year. I started teaching Sign when I was 17, and have taught it ever since. I was an interpreter for many years, serving in different churches, the community, schools and for various conferences and concerts. American Sign Language is its own language and is considered a Foreign Language for those whose first language is spoken. In my classes, I teach conversational Sign, as well as History of Deaf Culture in America and around the world; the significance of ASL in modern society; the work of Deaf Pastors and Missionaries, those who minister in Deaf communities, and how we may also get involved in sharing the Gospel to those who are deaf and hard of hearing (did you know that less than 1% of Deaf people world-wide have been taught the Gospel of Jesus Christ?). I teach Introduction, Intermediate and Preparing to Interpret. My Business Stuff... I have my Master's degree in Human Resource Management, with a concentration in Career Development. I have taught at Montreat College, near Asheville, NC, for more than 20 years. My favorite courses to teach are Entrepreneurship, Management and Servant Leadership (where we study the Leadership of Christ). I also have a Business called Launched.Life where I work with individuals to create their own Career and Academic Maps, and with Entrepreneurs to develop Business Plans so they can start their own business. I teach three Business courses here: Career Launch (Middle School Explorers and High School Travelers), Business Launch (for budding Entrepreneurs), and Lead like Jesus. Hope we get a chance to learn together soon. ~Carroll Sue
