Workshop Description:

Teaching an Old Dog New Tricks: Educational Interpreting Strategies Workshop

This workshop will explore the kinds of preparation strategies that can support effective classroom interpreting.  By examining what hearing and Deaf teacher’s do with language, when using direct instruction, we will examine the ways in which interpreters can adopt similar strategies in mediated instruction.  We will also identify ten strategies that have a positive impact on interpretation and lead to enhanced student engagement.  Finally, participants will have an opportunity to practice several samples of classroom interpreting, in order to identify teacher discourse and engagement strategies.
