CS101 – Participants will learn in 4 weeks, via 14 online, self-study lessons and 4 instructor-led meetings, what Cued Speech is and how to cue the 40 sounds/phonemes of American English — and any words comprised of those sounds — using a simple system of consonant handshapes and vowel placements. Participants will learn to cue consonant-vowel syllables, in conjunction with the natural mouth movements of speech, to make all of the sounds of spoken language visually distinct.
CS101 incorporates our CS100 online, self-study curriculum which teaches the entire Cued Speech system and provides you with a plethora of video clips demonstrating how to cue each of the 40 phonemes of American English, in addition to hundreds of additional practice words and phrases. In order to learn to cue accurately and with proper form, we suggest that you complete every practice activity and watch each video demonstration at least twice. Three quizzes are included, as well, to check your understanding of the system.
CS101 differs from CS100 in that you will be guided through the entire course over a period of 4 weeks by an NCSA-Certified Instructor of Cued Speech. Maximum class size will be 6. Online classes will be conducted once per week for 1.5 hours each, in Zoom, and will meet in accordance with a specified schedule, as indicated in the short description of the course, above. If you should miss one of your 4 instructor-led sessions, you will be provided with the link each week to download and watch the recording of that week’s session. You are also welcome at any time to visit the Cue College website and purchase one or more private Cue Tutor sessions if you would prefer a live, interactive make-up session.
Upon registering for CS101, you will receive a Welcome email with instructions on how to print your “Student Timed Agenda,” which will indicate what preparation you should complete prior to attending each of the weekly classes and what topics will be covered in class each week by the instructor. You will also be provided with the link you will use to join each of your 4 instructor-led Zoom sessions. For purposes of ongoing review, practice, and fluency development, you will retain access to the entire course for a year from date of purchase.
In each of your 4 Zoom sessions, the instructor will: review the content covered in each of the pre-assigned self-study lessons; provide opportunities for guided cueing practice, where you will receive individualized feedback on your accuracy and form; and answer any questions that you might have.
If you need or want a Cue College Certificate of Completion for CS101 (a prerequisite for receiving ASHA, RID, or other CEU types), and if you expect to learn to cue by the end of the course, you must view all pages of the course, complete all practice activities (including viewing practice videos a minimum of 2 times each), complete all 3 quizzes with a score of 80% or better, and complete the final Course Evaluation. [Note: You may repeat the quizzes as many times as necessary in order to achieve the required 80% score.]
If you have signed up for the course with the expectation of earning ASHA or RID CEU’s, your instructor will provide further information on how to notify the appropriate agency of your successful completion of the course and receive your CEU’s.
