Students produce news stories and present them for the fictional “EYEWitness News Desk”. These stories include current events, weather, sports, and interviews with guest speakers. Preparing these reports and interviewing guest speakers introduce new sign language vocabulary. By the end of the semester, students begin producing segments for the EYEWitness News Desk called “The Mime Gourmet”, which they present almost entirely without the use of formal signs by employing numerous classifiers and sequencing.
