Cartography for Interpreters: Discourse Mapping


Educational discourse is highly structured, with predictable and repeated patterns through all grades and types of classroom activities.  Interpreters need to have strong mental maps of these discourse types and be able to express them clearly through use of space and prosodic features in ASL.  This workshop will use a combination of discussion and interactive activities to develop the knowledge and practice the skills that address the following challenges: What are the patterns of language in use in the classroom? What are the various options for use of space in ASL and how can they most effectively convey classroom content? What is prosody and how can we represent English prosodic features in a visual form?
