Prerequisite: acceptance into the interpreting program and a grade of C- or better in ASL-365 and ASL-311 or by placement. Designed as a lecture/lab course, this course concentrates on the production aspects of spontaneous ASL to-English and English-to-ASL interpreting. Students incorporate linguistic and functional text analyses into their consecutive interpreting performances. Students are introduced to team interpreting techniques including the open interpreting model where both teamed interpreters feed each other in full view of the Deaf consumer. Students work with recorded messages and with guest speakers in interpreting situations that include monologues, dialogues, interviews and group discussions. Emphasis is on accurate and fluent interpretations and on learning troubleshooting strategies to ensure accurate voicing. (Offered every spring semester.)
