ISU sign language class helps students interact with the deaf community

The American Sign Language program at Iowa State does more than just teach people how to sign. It also introduces students to the deaf culture. One way it does that is to bring the students to the Iowa School for the Deaf in Council Bluffs. It's a chance to spend several days using only sign language. But it's also an opportunity to learn more about the experiences of deaf children. And ultimately, the goal is for some of the ASL students to continue their sign language education and maybe one day become an interpreter.
