You will watch a video in which a narrator challenges five common myths about mental illnesses. In the video, the narrator provides an argument for why each myth is inaccurate. Before watching the video, consider some myths you have heard about mental illness. Why are these myths untrue?
Watch the Video Again: Now that you have seen the video and the list of concepts that Dr. Bienvenu compared and contrasted using space, watch the video again to see if you missed any of these concepts. How does her use of space make the message coherent? If you were introducing yourself in ASL, how might you use your own signing space for similar purposes? Sketch out a brief introduction of yourself specifically focusing on your use of your own signing space to compare, contrast, and introduce concepts. Then practice introducing yourself in ASL while using space for these functions.
