Memoria Press, First Form’s publisher, states that completion of the material in this book fulfills the requirements for one year of high school credit. Included in the textbook portion of the class, students will learn to recognize English derivatives of Latin words which will help them to increase their understanding of English.

ABOUT THE TEACHER: I have been signing for almost 20 years now.  I started ASL classes my freshman year of high school and continued into college.  I have also taught ASL full time at Maranatha High School in Pasadena for the past 6 years. 

COURSE DESCRIPTION: This course is an introduction to the fundamentals of American Sign Language, with an emphasis on the development of comprehensive skills.  Attention will also be given to expressive skills, including appropriate grammatical structure, fingerspelling and vocabulary development.  Information about the Deaf community and its culture will also be included. 

WHEN: Starting in January 2019 (see note below) 

START DATE:  January 16, 2019

COST: Class duration semesters (2 hours a week)  $500 per semester per student plus the cost of workbook 

(Family discounts available if more than one family member takes the course together)

ASL classes are typically a year long (2 semester) course.  For the 2018-2019 school year these classes will be a 2 hour a week class, staring in the Spring, instead of the normal 1 hour a week class to compensate for the loss of time in first semester. Two semesters will be taught in one semester but the pacing will still follow students needs as to not overwhelm them. Prices will reflect this adjustment as well.  The following school year, 2019-2020, classes will return to one hour a week for fall and spring semester. 
Date and times of classes are TBA.
