Hey everyone! As of this week, I have finally wrapped up my independent study on American Sign Language. This has been one of the best learning experiences for me as I got to study something that really interested me, and work at my own pace, so I’m super sad that it’s ending. However, the one positive of this experience coming to a close is that I now get to show you all my final project! As I’ve mentioned in earlier blog posts, I decided to create an infographic dedicated to informing people about ASL as a whole, and a video component which touched more on my experience as an independent learning with the subject.
Before finishing my study, I wanted to take this blog post to thoroughly thank everyone involved in helping me along the way. First, Ms. Garci, my content advisor throughout this semester, who consistently gave me great advice, helped guide me through obstacles, and always made time in her schedule to meet with me every week! Also, Ms. Bessias for giving me this opportunity and facilitating the best learning environment for me, as well as all independent learners. Also, a huge thanks to Jan Withers, Susan Cataldo, and Catherine Hayward for meeting with me to provide outside opinions and perspectives as members of the Deaf community!
And also thanks to all of you who kept up with my blog throughout this semester! I really hope I was able to inspire you guys to learn more about ASL, or at least teach all of you about something that you didn’t already know about this incredible language.
And, without further ado, my final project:
