ASL Takes a Stand
ASL Takes A Stand – More than 100 students at Ocean City High School take American Sign Language, and some have turned their passion for sign language into a career. The students use inside/outside circles facing each other and doing repetitive sign language; parallel partner lines, and interactive surveys . They conduct face time with people from the deaf community, giving the students an opportunity for authentic communication. The students also produced and performed a sign language music video for Anti-bullying Awareness Month. This class gives the students the opportunity to receive a seal of literacy and Sign Language Proficiency Interview (SLPI). The goal of the SLPI is to assess how well people are able to use sign language for communication.
