The English class for Deaf students consists of four levelsof English courses combined into one class. Students from all four levelsmeet in one classroom, at the same time -- Tuesdays and Thursdays, 11 AMto 12:15 PM. All four levels are offered every semester.

The four levels are:

* Students enrolled in these courses are required to take a grammar lab,Eng:022-090 or ENG:032-090 concurrently with their writing class.

Which level you are placed in is determined by taking anassessment test before enrolling, or by previous coursework at other institutions.

IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED THAT YOU REGISTER FOR THEDEAF READING CLASS AT THE SAME TIME AS THE DEAF ENGLISH CLASS. Deaf Reading and Deaf English are "linked." That meansbothh instructors co-teach in both classes, both classes use the same book,both classes use visual teaching techniques, assignments are related (wheneverpossible), most of the Deaf students are in both classes. Both classes alsohave a Supplemental Instruction (SI) Leader.

All Deaf students are placed in the same class becausethe instructor and the department feel that the Deaf students can help eachother more effectively, whether they are at the same level or not. Deafstudents are NOT required to enroll in the Deaf section of English.You may choose to enroll in another section, and you will be provided withan interpreter. However, most of our Deaf students have had better successin the Deaf English section.
