Video Description

Doug shares with Ryan stories about his experiences camping above the Arctic Circle in Alaska in Gates of the Arctic National Park on both a backpacking trip and on a river trip using a folding canoe and kayak.

Reviewer Notes

  • This is a very rich and descriptive account of several camping experiences above the Arctic Circle (Gates of the Arctic National Park) and the BWCA. Lots of opportunity for descriptive interpreting. Rich interchange between the discussants. Genre: inquiry and expository. Register: informal.
  • This is a richly visual and spatial text with a very natural interaction between a Deaf and hearing individual who are both avid campers about both their trips and also their coping skills and camping skills.
  • A great way to practice interpreting for a vivid storyteller and capturing the story visually.

About this Video

The interactive videos in this series were created in partnership during the Graduation to Certification program through a collaboration between the CATIE Center and the Duluth Branch of the NAACP. These unscripted conversations were interpreted by novice interpreters in the GTC program and the video was edited to the best of our ability to remove the interpretation to create practice material. There may be some legacies of the original interpretation such as repetition due to the original interpreter asking for clarification or sometimes all of the interpretation may not be edited out due to overlapping communication.
