Queer ASL 103

Queer ASL 103 is for people who have a little bit of experience with ASL. This course covers ASL classifiers & storytelling. At home, students access video homework videos 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 103 are able to start having basic conversations with signing queer folks and a better understanding of the deaf/signing community.
