Teaching Strategies: Mastery of Meaning

This workshop addresses the heart of interpreting – meaning. How do we manage shades of meaning, addressing subtleties and nuances found in language? As interpreters, we determine meaning through a combination of factors such as context, intonation, intent, setting, and other linguistic features. We often use implication and inference to insinuate meaning beyond the words spoken. This training focuses on interpretation from English to ASL and how to gain mastery over meaning.

Participants will be able to:

  • Define “Shades of Meaning”.
  • Discuss the factors which comprise “meaning”.
  • Practice accurately interpreting “inferencing scenario” from English to ASL.

Important Information

The training will hold a maximum of 50 attendees. Anyone who registers after the 50 seats have been filled will be put on a waiting list. Training is open and given priority to Educational Interpreters who work in Pennsylvania schools.
