It’s the Little Things:
Seemingly Simple Words, Their Intricate
Interpretations and Making the Link for Deaf Students

Novice interpreters often assume they’ll be spending lots of processing time figuring out how to express “big” words such as filibuster, copacetic and serendipitous in ASL. However, interpreters get stuck when it comes to the every-day words and/or phrases that include such words as is, take, and make because each word/phrase carries a multitude of meanings. In the educational setting, this issue becomes more significant because the interpreting is done while Deaf students are developing their literacy skills. In this 3-hour workshop, participants will look at multiple meanings of these simple works. We will also look at strategies for highlighting the connection between the
English and the ASL within the interpretation. Participants are invited to bring their own examples for the group to puzzle over. Be ready to take this workshop to heart to make your classroom
interpreting more meaningful for the Deaf students.

This Professional Studies program is offered for .3 RID CEUs.

Target audience: Novice through experienced educational interpreters


Boundary Issues in Educational Interpreting:
Where and How Do You Draw the Line?

Often times in K-12 settings, when faced with a situation that crosses a boundary, interpreters will use ASL signs like BACK-OUT (of a situation), DRAW-THE-LINE (between me and the
consumer), THINK-SELF (“It’s up to you.”) and NOT-MYBUSINESS. Yet, when talking about necessities of educational settings, these very same interpreters will assert how critical it is to create rapports with the Deaf student(s) and hearing consumers. These two seemingly contradictory views
leave the educational interpreter in a quandary. What, then, is the balance between establishing healthy relationships and keeping your distance in the classroom setting? Where should interpreters
draw the line? What kind of line should be drawn? This three-hour workshop will explore this issue and offer possible solutions through a synthesis of established research and first-person
experiences/responses. Participants will have the opportunity to practice this approach in a number of scenarios.
