9781563685798: More Than Meets the Eye: Revealing the Complexities of an Interpreted Education (Gallaudet Studies In Interpret)

Sign language interpreters often offer the primary avenue of access for deaf and hard of hearing students in public schools. More than 80% of all deaf children today are mainstreamed, and few of their teachers sign well enough to provide them with full access. As a result, many K-12 interpreters perform multiple roles beyond interpreting. Yet, very little is known about what they actually do and what factors inform their moment-to-moment decisions. This volume presents the range of activities and responsibilities performed by educational interpreters, and illuminates what they consider when making decisions.

       To learn about the roles of K-12 interpreters, author Melissa B. Smith conducted in-depth analyses at three different schools. She learned that in response to what interpreters feel that their deaf students need, many focus on three key areas: 1) visual access, 2) language and learning, and 3) social and academic participation/inclusion. To best serve their deaf students in these contexts, they perform five critical functions: they assess and respond to the needs and abilities of deaf students; they interpret with or without modification as they deem appropriate; they capitalize on available resources; they rely on interactions with teachers and students to inform their choices; and they take on additional responsibilities as the need arises.

Book Description Gallaudet University Press,U.S., United States, 2013. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Over eighty percent of all deaf children today are main streamed but very few teachers sign well enough to be able to provide these students with full access in the classroom. As a result, it falls to sign language interpreters to offer the primary avenues of access for deaf and hard of hearing students. But despite the importance of their role, relatively little is known about the methodologies these interpreters employ on a daily basis. To fill this gap, Melissa B. Smith offers an in-depth analysis of K-12 interpreters at three schools. Her findings illuminate the critical functions in-school interpreters perform in response to three key areas of need: visual access, language and learning, and social and academic participation and inclusion.
