Course Description
This course is an advanced/conversational ASL course that explores several key
 topics related to Deaf Culture.  Using only ASL in class, students will read
 and discuss books, articles, and films related to the following topics: Deaf
 History, Deaf Identity, Deafness as Asset, Communication Issues and
 Pathological Perspectives on Deafness, Deafness and Education, Deaf/Hearing
 Family Dynamics.  Language growth will stem from direct instruction as well as
 through the course of class conversation.  Students will collaborate with the
 instructor and our Deaf community liaison to develop and host an event that is
 accessible to both Deaf and hearing people alike.
