ASLIE Students Interpret “Think History” by Bill Goodman
Students in EKU’s American Sign Language and Interpreter Education program (ASLIE) are not “hands down” during the COVID-19 situation. Instead, they are “hands up,” interpreting segments of the popular “Think History” with Bill Goodman featured on WEKU 88.9 radio. This project is one of the many innovative options created by College of Education leadership as an alternative to in-person internships.
“Think History,” sponsored by Kentucky Humanities covers Kentucky history topics from Secretariat to Keeneland and to how the KY Wildcats got their name. The short presentations are featured twice daily on WEKU 88.9 radio. EKU ASLIE professors realized these audio broadcasts on Kentucky history would also be interesting for the Deaf/Hard of Hearing community. Students are assigned segments to practice, video, submit to professors for feedback. Upon approval, each segment is upload to the College of Education YouTube Channel for everyone to enjoy.
Special thanks to Mr. Bill Goodman providing the transcripts and supporting this project.
