Description

Culture Club – Level: Conversational or Silent

If you are someone who loves the Arts and cannot seem to get enough of them throughout the day, the Culture Club is going to be your band of peeps.  This club is for you individualists who like visiting Museums or Art Galleries; Painting landscapes or sculpting; or binging on Musical Theatre and Ballets on YouTube.  Let’s get together and talk about our own work, and our own discoveries. Each week you will be encouraged to find something new to you — whether it is a Gallery opening, or redecorating your bedroom — and share it with others who share your bohemian passions. 
ASL is a visual language, so it stands to reason that Deaf people would be very active in the visual arts. There are many famous Deaf artists who have continually and accurately portrayed the Deaf experience in their media of choice. Deaf culture itself is even passed down “verbally” through storytelling, theater, and performances–not through books like the hearing culture.  We will explore some of this work in our club meetings.

Themed Clubs are for students who have completed Introduction to ASL, know the Manual Alphabet and Numbers; have at least 100 signs in their noggin; have a working understanding of ASL; and can participate in a meaningful conversation in Sign Language. These Clubs are designed to be Conversational or Silent (advanced, where no voice used).  The students in each group will decide how their group will communicate. Each Club lasts one month, and then another club can be chosen.  The goal of each is to develop a deeper understanding of Deafness, the Deaf Experience and Deaf Culture, with the goal of ministering to and sharing the Gospel with people who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing.

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
