Interpreter Workshop AND Silent Night Dinner & Auction
Lovers Lane United Methodist Church
9200 Inwood Road
Dallas, Texas 75220

Come to one or both events!

9 am – 12 noon: “Make The English Tangible in ASL” Interpreter Workshop led
by Windell “Wink” Smith, Jr. Watson Hall. Cost $25.

Picture a train… What do you see? Now ask a friend to picture a train and
have them explain or draw what they first saw. Is it the same image you had?
Most likely not, ASL is not any different; we all have different
“pictures”. One interpreter may interpret a concept completely differently
than you do. This workshop focuses on harnessing the ability to create a
beautiful ASL interpretation of an English text that bridges both the
cultural and linguistic gap while respecting each individual‘s “picture”.
This Content Area PS program is offered for [.3] CEU’s at the little/no’
Content Knowledge Level.”
