McCracken Middle School


“A Sign of the Times”  is ideal for anyone with an interest in learning beginning American Sign Language. Learn ASL vocabulary, phrases, sentences, grammar, Deaf culture, and much more! In this course, you will learn basic skills to enable you to communicate with members of the deaf community, which is large in our city because Spartanburg is home to the only school for the deaf in South Carolina. This is a great opportunity for anyone with an interest in learning a new visual language through fun activities such as games, dramatic skits, and even a field trip to SCSDB.  This will include a tour of the deaf and blind school and opportunities to develop a friendship with a deaf student of the same age.

If you feel that this course may interest you, please watch the video in the following link to see how another student who has taken ASL (American Sign Language) has had an impact on the community in which she lives.
