This course guides interpreters working on English-to-ASL skills. Challenges in rendering ASL from English source material develop visual thinking skills. Learners will be able to:

  • Demonstrate application of interpreting person, content, place, time, procedures, causes, and reasoning
  • Demonstrate increased classifier incorporation in interpreting
  • Demonstrate non-question forms of “who, what, where, when, how and why” 
  • Demonstrate rich visual imagery in interpreting
  • Collaborate in developing ASL expression of English phrases
  • Match concepts represented by multiple-meaning words

This course will have several hands-on practice activities and group discussions. Additional online coursework will be required to qualify for credit.

Target audience: K-12 interpreters, student interpreters, community interpreters, and deaf and hard of hearing teachers.
