ASL in Public Education

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, I am writing this for some research for a paper I'm writing and would appreciate if you guys would answer some questions.

-What are your thoughts on implementing American Sign Language in public school?
-Do you have any concerns?
-What would be some benefits?
-If this happens, should more middle and/or high schools offer more courses relating to American Sign Language and the Deaf culture?
-What do you think would/could happen to schools for the deaf if this happens? Would they keep running or, after a while, would deaf students be spread out around hearing schools?
 

**For Deaf and/or Hard-of-Hearing people**

-Do you think it would help you now even though you have hearing aids?
-How well do your hearing aids work?
-Are/were there any obstacles you came across with your hearing aids?

If there is anything else you think would help, please feel free to add that in your response.

    • That sounds like a great plan! I'll be there when I can :)
    • Hello, I am Amy.
    • I like your idea! I'll try to be there.
    • I've noticed there's an increasing amount of people attempting to use the chat rooms on the website to practice. I'm here to possibly discuss a solution. If people read this, we could arrange to have people congregate to the chatroom at around 9 pm EST two days a week. At this time most people would be off work and have a little bit of free time. My suggestion is everyone tries to hop on around 9 pm EST either every Friday (as per the calendar) or every Wednesday and Saturday, where people get two opportunities per week to meet others. What do you guys think? I try to check the chat every other day at around 8 pm EST.   My ultimate suggestion is 9 pm EST on Friday. What do you guys think?
