Deaf Culture and tidbits
This funny anecdote "The Tallest" is excerpted from https://www.handspeak.com/learn/index.php?id=203
One of my ASL students was a volleyball player and was the tallest person in the class, even in the whole ASL courses I've ever taught over the past years. Really very tall. During our first test of the spring-term course, students sat in the rows (more likely columns). The tallest student sat in the very back of the line. It didn't matter as she could see me all over the students in front of her. What the students weren't informed what I typically do during quizzes, tests, and exams was that I always stood on the chair for everyone to see me clearly. As I stood up on the chair, the tallest kid burst laughing. I looked at her like "what was funny?", standing tall. As she tried to explain but decided to gesture 'never mind'. Realizing in all sudden I was taller than her, I got it with a laugh. -- Jolanta, 2016/17(?).
