Final
For your ASL final, you will be using the concepts that we have learned in this unit (classifiers, 5 parameters of ASL tenses, and ASL literacy) to sign the fable "The Ant and the Grasshopper". Over the next couple of days, you will look at different fables and understand what they are.  Additionally, you will observe the fable you will be signing.
