Course Description

Increases simultaneous ASL to English and English to ASL interpreting skills. Focuses on individual areas of needed skill growth. Includes in-class interpretation of live presenters, specialized topics and group discussions. Department permission may be required. Prerequisite: ITP 273.

Intended Outcomes for the course

Upon completion of this course students will be able to:

  • given a source language text, produce a simultaneous interpretation of the complete text which meets the following criteria:
    • Each sentence must be complete and grammatically correct.
    • Each sentence must be equivalent to the signer's message.
    • All sentences must be congruent in light of the signer's intent and the message as a whole . Gish, S. (1993) Practice Guidelines, used by permission.

Course Activities and Design

Class time will be devoted primarily to simultaneous interpretation of live speakers and signers giving presentations which focus on their own areas of expertise. In addition to practicing simultaneous interpretation skills, this will afford students the opportunity to practice preparing to interpret specific specialized topics.
 

Outcome Assessment Strategies


Students will be evaluated through formal evaluations of ASL-to-English simultaneous interpretations and English-to-ASL simultaneous interpretations. Students will be expected to complete self-assessments of their own work.
 

Course Content (Themes, Concepts, Issues and Skills)


This course continues work on the skill of simultaneous interpretation of both English and ASL texts, including techniques for managing the process. It reinforces the following topics from previous process classes:

  • Models of the interpreting process
  • Achieving dynamic equivalence
  • Separating meaning and form
  • Analysis of context, purpose and register of both English and ASL texts
  • Analysis of content of a text to determine organization, and main and supporting points of both English and ASL texts
  • Discourse mapping of both English and ASL texts
