American Sign Language II is a continuation of American Sign Language I, the natural language used by deaf individuals and the Deaf community. Students will deepen their understanding of the grammatical structure of ASL as well as improve both their receptive and expressive signing skills. The students will learn additional number concepts, such as time, money, fractions, and ordinal numbers, personal and possessive pronouns, giving and receiving directions, making requests, action words, and common phrases and sentences used in everyday situations. A continuation of deaf culture and its history will be covered.
American Sign Language II is offered through Interactive Video Distance Learning, and will also incorporate the use of Google Classrooms as well as Schoology (online support). Due to the visual nature of the language of ASL, students will be required to provide and upload recorded video of sign language assignments as part of the course interaction. Live instruction daily will be recorded daily in order to provide outside of class access to lessons of the interactive instruction as part of the classroom support structure. Through grants and investment in the video conferencing delivery method, we are able to provide each individual period of instruction with its own classroom recording of live instruction daily, this is then accessible via a web browser, and username and password.
All World languages through East Central Ohio Educational Service Center focus on the targets of language instruction set forth by ACTFL standards; Communication, Culture, Connections, Comparisons, and Communities. We strive for teaching a 2nd language through native, real-world practices and experiences; most class periods spend a target of 90% or more of the instructional time in the target language. Unlike world language classrooms of old, where grammar and vocabulary drills dominated instruction, our world language program focuses on language for proficiency. In our language programs, students and teachers are engaged in the target language through authentic learning experiences, producing proficient speakers in the language.
