Discussion Partners: Ryan and Doug

Video Description

Doug and Ryan discuss recent movies and TV shows that they watched during the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions. At the end of the conversation, Doug and Ryan share experiences related to football, sparked after seeing the movie Concussion, which is based on the real-life experiences of a doctor who identified the prevalence of Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) in professional football players.

Reviewer Notes

  • The conversation references TV shows, movies, documentaries, and streaming platforms, and football injuries. This video helps students practice fingerspelling, receptive skills and retrieval of Extra-Linguistic Knowledge during an interpretation.
  • This video provides opportunities for fingerspelling comprehension, best supported when the interpreter shares schema.
  • Overall this is a great video. Very generic and easy to follow for most people. General topic breadth, no complex jargon, etc.

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.
