NEW! Signs of Our Times I: An Exploration of American Sign Language and Deaf Culture

NEW! Signs of Our Times I: An Exploration of American Sign Language and Deaf Culture
4 sessions, 6 hours 

We are living in a hub of the American deaf community as residents of Frederick. Often times we find ourselves fascinated by the visual language, or perhaps, frustrated by the fact that we are at a “loss for words” in the presence of deaf individuals. This class will enlighten you to the rich history and culture of the DEAF community and its language. In these two, sequential courses you will also be introduced to using American Sign Language. We will enjoy the verbal and nonverbal class participation as we learn to appreciate the manual language through movement, mime, and improvisation exercises.

Instructor: Martha B. Pugh holds a Master’s degree in Secondary Deaf Education from Gallaudet University and a Bachelor’s degree in English Education from Boston University. She has over 20 years of experience in teaching Introductory ASL classes. Martha has also been working as an ASL interpreter for elementary, secondary, and post- secondary schools for the past 22 years. She enjoys sharing her love of ASL with all ages.
