Translating from ASL
Translating from ASL teaches the steps necessary to take any ASL source material and complete the following tasks:
- Analyze the meaning of the message
- Develop a message equivalent for the target language
- Test the resulting translation for accuracy
- Make adjustments to the message where necessary
These tasks allow students to focus on the message transfer without the time restrictions associated with simultaneous interpreting.
Added features in the teacher's guide make this a comprehensive teaching tool.
- Teachers are provided with examples of appropriate responses to the questions in the student's workbook (shown in italics)
- Also in italics are additional teacher's notes providing tips to the instructor for optimal use of the materials.
- A valuable Five-Step Follow-Up section, following each lesson, reinforces everything the student has learned
