Sign language is not universal. Different countries communicate with different manual languages similar to spoken languages. American Sign Language is based on the French system of sign language. Standardization of it began in the early 1800's when the first school for the deaf was established in Hartford, Conn. ASL is now used by approximately one half million Deaf people in the United States and Canada. Many hearing people are also learning ASL. Reasons can include planning a career like sign language interpreting or theatrical work, or fascination with a new form of communication. ASL incorporates gesture, finger-spelling, body posture and facial expression with handshapes and movement as the basis of its grammatical features. The class will also include information on deaf culture; its clubs, national organizations, major institutions and technology. A history of education and social systems will be provided as well as the current issues facing the deaf community. Speakers will present on a variety of these topics. This language can also be useful to those students whose major is in health care, teaching or social work. There will be a laboratory component with DVD for practice. Lab Fee.
