Abstract

The class of ASL 430 has endeavored to portray the evolution of methods implemented to teach American Sign Language throughout the years. Only within the last few decades has ASL been recognized as a true language. Thus, the means by which it was taught has been altered over time, not only in regards to how the language is viewed, but also in accordance with the latest teaching methods. The students in this presentation wish to share the history of a language they love and appreciate, students will show a video presenting six different methods, followed by a question and answer session.
