ASL (American Sign Language) for Everyone ASL (American Sign Language) for Everyone - ASL for Everyone is a fun, play-based sign language class for elementary students. Students will begin to learn the language of the Deaf community by signing the alphabet and developing a vocabulary for greetings, everyday objects, and common phrases and idioms. In Quarter Four, we will work on telling stories. Students will work in groups to develop a signed version of their favorite story. New students are welcome, and this project will make it easy for anyone to jump right in. Students will watch short movie clips of award winning ASL stories. Instruction will be tailored to the groups' interests and needs. As always, this level will include more emphasis on the five elements of each sign; handshape, motion, location, palm orientation, and facial expression. For example, 'please' and 'sorry' have the same motion, location, and palm orientation, but differ in handshape. Fingerspelling and proper ASL grammar will continue to be a focus. We will also learn about the history and culture of the Deaf community. ASL is an excellent second language choice for children who are not ready for a foreign language with difficult writing, spelling, or challenging pronunciation. Penn State University research demonstrated that adding the visual and kinesthetic elements of ASL to verbal communication helped to enhance the vocabulary, spelling, and reading skills in hearing students.

Everday Spanish Conversation Everday Spanish Conversation - Hola amigos! How about learning Spanish by just hanging out with friends and... talking? This class is all about fun and relevant Spanish conversation that you can use every day whether you are traveling, shopping, or going around town. You can't talk to your online Spanish computer program, textbook or app! You need real people to practice speaking with!
This class is designed to build your confidence as you practice a new language - out loud. Class discussions will be built around things that students want to discuss and will incorporate the vocabulary and enough essential grammar to get the conversation started. Fourth quarter will focus on talking about daily routines & healthy living including home life, school, activities, self-care, sports and exercise.
This class encourages students to use their Spanish even as brand-new speakers. This class should be used to complement or supplement a more traditional Spanish language curriculum for an emerging speaker. Students who come to the class with more knowledge will be offered challenge words and phrases related to the week's theme.
Students who are using another Spanish program outside of Compass should expect to spend 20 minutes per day on short written or brief technology-based assignments. Students who are using this class as their only introduction to the language should allot more time, typically 30 to 45 minutes each day, to complete homework and study vocabulary and grammar. This is a 7-week class that will begin on April 6. (No class meeting on March 23 or March 30).
