Discussion Partners: Daniel and Sean
Daniel and Sean discuss various superheroes.
- This is an engaging interchange between two Deaf and hearing individuals who are very energized and excited about superheroes and the actors that play them. They are very much in synch and on the same page up to the point where the Deaf conversant starts to talk about Deaf actors and movies with which the hearing person is unfamiliar. The way they work to fill in the gaps and stay on the same page is a wonderful example of cultural sharing and interaction and poses wonderful context-building and rapport-building challenges for the interpreter.
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.
