Workshop/Course Description

Interpretation can be challenging in the science classroom.  Students accessing direct instruction and interpreting services is a complex task.  However, much of the science learned in school relies on students communicating and listening to ideas presented by teachers and peers during science lessons. This workshop will introduce you to the basics of science education, such as Three-Dimensional Learning (3DL) - a national teaching framework in science classrooms, and its components as well as the existing resources in scientific-ASL lexicon to help you develop better nuances of interpreting in the science classroom. You will develop understanding on how you could address some of these challenges through collaboration with teachers and students in the classroom you work in to create more inclusive science learning for deaf students.

Educational Objectives

  • Develop skill in scientific interpretation by practicing the technical tools on interpreting scientific passages

  • Develop a better understanding of your role as an interpreter in a science context

  • Leveraging the existing scientific-ASL resources to work with your deaf students on developing ways to produce scientific-ASL in your classroom.
