Pardon my ignorance, but it seems your questions should have been asked and answered in ASL, not by e-mail. Maybe I misunderstood the purpose of the assignment. Anyway, Bott was nice enough to provide you with a response.

I am a Deaf Education student at an entirely different school but recently had a very similar assignment. You all are right. The true purpose of this assignment is to learn more about Deaf Culture and a particular Deaf individual/their experiences growing up WHILE using their signing skills. This really shouldn't have been done in text! If it had to be done online, it should be done via video.
