Reviewer Notes

  • In addition to receptive fingerspelling practice and recall of different regional signs, this video also provides an opportunity for the novice interpreter to check their extralinguistic knowledge when it comes to the Deaf community. Familiarity with agencies/organizations serving the Deaf and DeafBlind communities will make this video easier to interpret.
  • This is good practice for discussing the deaf community and recognizing different fingerspelled words.

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.
