In this course, students will develop ASL receptive and expressive skills needed to communicate series of connected paragraphs using complex connected sentences. At the end of the semester, students will achieve effective communication by using vocabulary, grammar, and cultural protocols for conveying details about less familiar topics at an Intermediate-High level based on American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Language (ACTFL) standards. Activities include delivering presentations and lab exercises that provide extensive hands-on practice using a variety of media. Students are expected to engage with members of the Deaf community in order to learn about Deaf co-culture in the United States (U.S.). To progress to the next courses in the series (INTP-325 American Sign Language VI, and INTP-310 Interpreting I), ASL-English Interpretation students must complete this course with a minimum grade of C or better.
