Abstract

This presentation consists of performances in American Sign Language (ASL) by students in ASL classes at Central Washington University. Group project presentations by second year students will include Millions of Cats, a classical children’s story told in ASL. The objective of the project is to develop unique creative performances by intertwining signs among a group of storytellers. Third year students will present “Individual Works Using Creative Use of Signs” in which each student developed their own individual stories using traditional ASL and creative use of signs. All projects will have a brief description about ASL as a language and its components. All performances will be voiced for the signing impaired.
