$56

with Carol Sturtevant

Jan 18, 2017 at 5 pm, runs for 16 weeks

This course will emphasize the basics of American Sign Language (ASL) and is appropriate for students who have little or no previous knowledge of ASL. It is also appropriate for students needing diploma credit or credit recovery. A study of the Deaf Community and Deaf Culture will also be emphasized, through the study of culturally appropriate behaviors and the historical aspects of the development and acceptance of ASL as a recognized language. The use of ASL in the classroom will be practiced by students and demonstrated by the instructor throughout the semester. In this way, students will develop beginning conversational skills. Students will be exposed to the following aspects of ASL grammar: basic vocabulary, fingerspelling techniques, numbers, syntax, visual-gestural skills, and grammatical non-manual skills, in order to provide competence in communication. Students will practice receptive and expressive appropriate activities, as a component of successful communication. A textbook will be used to offer a wide range of vocabulary and cultural aspects of the language.

Thinking Outside the Coffin W17

$5

with Charles Lakin

Apr 27, 2017 at 6 pm, runs for 1 week
Do you find this topic scary? This class isn’t; it’s informative, even funny at times. At the end of the class you’ll have learned about all the options you have in funeral arrangements for burial, cremation, or body donation. Half the class time is devoted to answering your questions. Do your survivors a favor and sign up for this class. Take a look at www.lastthings.net to see what you’ll learn. Chuck Lakin is a woodworker and home funeral educator, whose interest in this topic came from his experience at his father’s death. He wanted to be a part of what happened after the death, but didn’t know what to do, and missed out. Now he knows and wants to share that information. Limit: none
