Class description

Description

Taking what students have learned in previous classes, we will continue adding new vocabulary, and we will build conversations to increase fluency in both signing and reading signs.  Students will develop fluency through signing with each other, story-telling, voicing ASL, and interpreting songs, and portions of sermons and lessons.

Classes are limited to 8 students so that the Teacher can engage each student and ensure that signs are being done correctly.  Classes are LIVE, not recorded.  Interaction is in real time, not videoed and sent to the teacher.  Classes are FUN and engaging.  Students are able to make friends and give and receive encouragement.

Assignments for work outside the classroom will be  given periodically so that the students can further develop their understanding of Deafness, Deaf culture, Deaf education, Interpretation, etc.  This  class will also have guest speakers, such as deaf adults, interpreters, missionaries for the Deaf and Deaf Pastors.

What Will I Learn?

  • My goal is teaching Sign Language is that students will gain enough knowledge and skill to share the gospel with someone who is Deaf. I want to move them on to meeting and building relationships with Deaf folks in their own community. Being comfortable with their communication ability to then grown further and learn not only ASL, but the history, and culture of Deaf in the US and abroad. Less than 4% of Deaf people in the US have been told the redeeming good news of Jesus Christ. Globally, that number is less than 1%. Christians MUST be more proactive in learning Sign Language and sharing the Gospel. That is what these courses are all about. We have a great time meeting new friends and learning a new language, but the sole purpose is to spread the Gospel of Jesus.

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
