The Elementary ASL Class for Grades 4th through 6th, taught by Pamela Baker, is a comprehensive American Sign Language (ASL) curriculum designed specifically for students in the 4th to 6th grade range. This class aims to introduce students to the basics of ASL, including vocabulary, grammar, and cultural aspects of the Deaf community. The curriculum is divided into several units, each focusing on different themes and topics. The units are structured in a way that allows students to gradually build their ASL skills and knowledge throughout the course.

Here is an overview of the key components covered in the curriculum:

1. Introduction to ASL: Students are introduced to the history and importance of ASL as a language. They learn basic ASL greetings, introductions, and common phrases.

2. ASL Vocabulary: Students learn a wide range of ASL vocabulary related to various topics such as family, school, animals, food, and more. They practice signing and recognizing these signs through interactive activities and exercises.

3. ASL Grammar: Students delve into the grammar rules and structure of ASL. They learn about sentence formation, word order, verb agreement, and other grammatical aspects specific to ASL.

4. Conversational Skills: Students develop their conversational skills in ASL by engaging in dialogues, role-plays, and group discussions. They practice expressing their thoughts, opinions, and ideas using ASL.

5. Cultural Awareness: Students gain an understanding of Deaf culture and the Deaf community. They learn about the history, traditions, and contributions of Deaf individuals. This unit promotes inclusivity and fosters respect for diversity.

6. ASL Literature: Students explore ASL literature, including signed stories, poems, and songs. They analyze and interpret these works, enhancing their comprehension and appreciation of ASL as an expressive language.

Throughout the curriculum, interactive activities, videos, and visual aids are used to engage students and facilitate their learning experience. Assessments and evaluations are conducted to gauge students' progress and understanding of the material.

By the end of the Elementary ASL Class, students should have a solid foundation in ASL vocabulary, grammar, and conversational skills. They will have developed an appreciation for Deaf culture and an ability to have basic conversations in ASL.

Homework Requirements:

According to the Center's recommendation, it is advised to allocate 20 minutes for homework, 4 days a week. This duration is considered suitable for maintaining a balanced workload and allowing students to reinforce their learning outside of the classroom. By dedicating this amount of time to homework, students can effectively review and practice the concepts taught in class, leading to better understanding and retention of the material.

We will have a weekly log for sign practice at home
