Grades Online
If your 2nd quarter grade is higher than your semester grade, your 2nd quarter is improving your semester grade over 1st quarter. If, however, your semester grade is higher than your 2nd quarter grade, your 2nd quarter grade is dragging your semester grade down. Only your semester grades are recorded on your high school transcript, not quarter grades.

Signing Short Stories: Part of the semester final exam in January will be for you to sign a short story.

Type in English an interesting or funny, short story that would take you two to three minutes to tell about an experience you had with a favorite sport or other hobby or interest. Email the instructor your typed story. You will tell the story from memory (not read) in class while a classmate records Mr. Stamps interpreting the story into ASL.

Bring a digital recording device (e.g. smart phone or tablet computer) to record the interpretation so that you can use it as a reference to study how to recreate the story in ASL.

If you cannot come up with a story of your own, you can choose one of the stories below to interpret as part of the exam. These stories have simple ASL gloss provided for you. You will need to decide how your chosen story ends and gloss the ending for this assignment.
1. Little Red Riding Hood
2. The Three Little Pigs
3. Goldilocks and the Three Bears
4. parable of the prodigal son
5. Hamlet

For the final exam, you can either sign the story live in front of the class or record yourself signing the story on video and show the video to the class.
