Professor Jennifer Briggs meet with her American Sign Language class Friday afternoon in the lobby of McGaw Hall. The class of five students does not even have its own classroom.
Thumbs up? Actually, in ASL the ‘thumbs up’ sign we are familiar with means ‘ten.’ The class is working on a chapter on measurements.
Two of the ASL students, Sam Mowry (left) and Emily Kline, sign to Briggs (not pictured). Notice the motion in Kline’s hand, while Mowry is holding a sign.
