Class description

Description

Building on what we learned in the first Semester, we move on to structuring sentences, story telling and relating experiences.  This is a 14 week course.
We work to add another 150 signs to the vocabulary; to observe the syntax rules of ASL; to deepen our knowledge of deaf history and Deaf Culture; and look for ways to reach out to and minister to people with hearing loss.  This class meets 15 times in the semester.

Sign Language is Fun and Engaging and so is this class. This class is intentionally small so students can build friendships as they get to know each other. These are LIVE classes, not videos. I am an experienced teacher, and have been teaching Sign for more than 25 years.

I work with students to develop habits and skills that lead to fluency. Small group instruction, ensuring a firm foundation of good habits for finger spelling and signs. Within this course, students will work to master the Alphabet, numbers, greetings and first 100 signs.

We not only learn signs that lead to conversation and fluency, we learn about Deaf Culture, Ministry and Relationships. Sign Language is meant to be used, not to just be learned to check off a credit. There are many, many opportunities for ministry with people who are deaf all across this nation. We will talk about how we can use what we are learning to bless others.

What Will I Learn?

  • Upon completion of this class a student should have 200-250 signs memorized.
  • Students can build friendships with others who are learning.
  • Students receive encouragement and tips for growth.
  • Classes are fun and engaging.

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
