The teacher will focus on introducing the language in context and reinforcing what is learned by engaging you in various interactive activities. In addition to ASL vocabulary, students will learn about the diverse Deaf community. This conversational curriculum requires you to be an active learner, to communicate with your peers, and to focus with your eyes, not your ears. Come prepared to put your hands up and turn your voice off. Students who registered for IDS 099A in Spring 2023 may not register for this course. Graded S/U.  Two credit hours.
