        Sign of Distinction

        Although some classrooms might sound quiet, lots of learning is taking place at Vineland High School! Students here are able to choose American Sign Language (ASL) as their second language course in this episode of NJEA’s Classroom Close-up. As they work towards ASL proficiency, students learn that every language, including ASL, has a culture behind it. Students who are deaf are invited to class to bring their perspectives as native signers. The visitors note how unique an opportunity it is for students in this school to learn about the differences that exist between deaf and hearing cultures.
