Lesson: Describing the Arrangement of a Room


Course Outcomes
Course Description: This course is designed to build on and apply ASL grammatical skills and cultural behaviors acquired from previous courses, ASL 1 and ASL 2. ASL grammatical principals and functions will continued to be emphasized in this course. Students will learn and develop new expanded conversational and narrative skills in ASL using both concrete and abstract ideas/concepts. The course will give students opportunities to use various ASL features and conversational strategies to tell about their environment outside of the classroom, i.e. their home, to make suggestions/requests, and to narrate about life events that occurred in the past. Course Learning Outcomes: After completing this course students will be able to:
1. 2.

Demonstrate expanded conversational and narrative skills in ASL using both concrete and abstract ideas/ concepts. Exhibit the ability to use appropriate ASL grammatical features and functions of the language to tell about their environment outside of the classroom, i.e. their home, to make suggestions/requests, and to narrate about life events that occurred in the past. Demonstrate an understanding of and respect for Deaf Culture by engaging in appropriate conversation strategies used in the Deaf Community and to be able to use their ASL skills within and beyond the school settings.

Lesson Student Learning Outcomes: By the end of this lesson, students will be able to:
1. 2.

Identify and produce lexical signs for furniture and other xtures (i.e. lamp, plants) in a specic room of a house (i.e. living room or bedroom). Demonstrate accurate ASL facial grammar (NMS) and syntax to describe/tell how a room is arranged. This includes sequencing locations of furniture in a room by using the topic-comment structure and the non-dominant hand to establish the reference point. Develop and exhibit the ability to use locative and depicting verbs to describe di!erent furniture/xtures and its location in a room. Critically analyze how to use the various ASL features learned in this lesson to tell about their environment outside of classroom (i.e. their living room) using depicting verbs.
