Class description

Description

This is a 14 week course.
Building on what the students learned in Part 1, the class will move forward in their ASL communication skills.  Attention will be paid to sentence formation, presenting thoughts and information in ASL syntax and following the rules of the language. Each student will bring topics of discussion each week, and will lead the group on discussing the topic. Student assignments will include translating Bible verses and stories into ASL.  They will converse with one another; and they will voice in English what classmates sign.

We will learn more about Deaf History and Culture, through interviews with people who are deaf, as well as through interviews with ministers, missionaries and teachers for the deaf. Videos will be assigned to further understanding and insight into Life as a Deaf person.

If a students has taken Sign Language instruction elsewhere, but would like to join this class, please contact the instructor so as assessment of skills may be done.

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
