Queer ASL 102

Queer ASL 102 is for people who have a little bit of experience with ASL. This course covers unit 3.5 Р5 of Signing Naturally curriculum which involves learning more about facial expressions, vocabulary, and grammar structures. At home, students access homework videos that feature the local queer signing community and a collection of Deaf culture information such as identity politics, cultural norms, history, current topics and issues, etc. The courses have a voice-off policy in order to both be respectful of signing spaces and to immerse ourselves in a signing environment. People who complete Queer ASL 102 are able to start having basic conversations with signing queer folks and a better understanding of the deaf/signing community.
