In ASL 1, students will begin their journey to dive into the world of American Sign Language.
We will discover the history and culture of this beautiful community. From the beginning, students learn the unique grammar structure of the language. They will learn vocabulary of a variety of areas: greetings, colors, emotions, numbers, days of the week, verbs and so many more!
Twice a semester, the students will complete projects which include: learning to sign an introduction of themselves, and research a famous deaf/hard of hearing person.
Students will be introduced to ASL literature, art, and even songs in ASL!
Our curriculum, ASL Deafined, was recognized as being one of the “Best Homeschool Products & Curriculum of 2023-24,” by How To Homeschool. It has a video dictionary that is completely created by native signers and contains over 18,000 words!
The lessons are created to aid in retention of the content and include history, culture, grammar, and reception practice. This subscription based site is available to purchase through True North Homeschool Academy at a discounted rate.
Once a month, we will have the opportunity to interact with a native signer of ASL! When studying any language, it is important to use the language with a native and here is a chance for True North students to put their skills into practice!
