    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was a lot of fun as well as educational. I personally learned a lot in it. However I cannot give it a five out of five score because I felt like my class was a little behind. She is a very nice and easy going professor, but I felt she was too lenient at times. I did like the way she taught though. It also was her first year teaching, so I think she learned a lot from my class.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed the entire class. There was not one thing that I disliked about this class. The teacher gave us activities to do, which I felt help reinforce sign language. I learned about five hundred words in sign language.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure that you watch the videos, they are very helpful. Also, do not just assume that you know the signs, make sure you practice them. Also learning sign language you will be using your hands differently than how you normally do. So practicing the signs will help loosen the muscles in your hands, and make your signs look more natural.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course provided an interesting cultural, educational, social, and political knowledge of the history of American Sign Language. The professor was extremely engaged and organized. The Deaf community is overlooked in many ways, but this course brings it's successes, contributions, plights, and uniqueness to the forefront. Ultimately, this course builds cultural competence and awareness of a great language.

    Course highlights:

    The family life aspects and communication do's and don'ts associated with interaction between the speaking and the deaf was very eye opening. The history and heated debate over the cochlear implants threat to Deaf culture was also interesting. Furthermore, the mixture of finger-spelling, mime, and facial expression was enjoyable to learn.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Please make sure to have an open mind and eagerness to learn. This class is very quiet, so it's great for introverts, but can be challenging for extroverts. The professor is demanding and firm. You will complete this course with a new found love and respect for American Sign Language, the Deaf community and culture.
