English Equivalents: Time After Time

English Equivalents is a powerful workshop that will guide participants in finding ways to express idiomatic translations from American Sign Language (ASL) to English, and from English to ASL. Many signs are complex and not easy to translate. This video workshop will give you the skill to express idiomatic and technical ideas effectively. English Equivalents in ASL will help you confidently continue the flow of information exchange between the languages. Trix demonstrates this process with a myriad of practical examples and useful principles. The focus of this workshop is on Time Indicators.

Good News! Soon, you’ll have opportunity to earn CEUs from home with your favorite workshop leader, Trix Bruce! Starting in July 2012, interpreters will be able to move forward with professional development by watching videos and interacting with Trix online. Of course, Trix isn’t going to stop traveling to present her shows and workshops. However, in addition to setting up new workshops and producing videos, Trix is readying online professional development options.

Slides, transcripts, and visual aids will make these online programs fully accessible and easy to use. Look for these great programs, soon!

ASL Extreme Makeovers: The Art of Personification

Learn how to “change yourself” into someone or something else. In literature, the technique of “personification” gives an inanimate object, a plant, or an animal characteristics that make it seem “human”. The object shows emotions and takes on human-like behaviors. You can use this technique in American Sign Language to “become” a book, a flower, or even a butterfly! Trix will demonstrate how to personify characters and shift roles within your story. You’ll learn how to “become” a baseball, basketball, beach ball, bowling ball, football, marble, ping pong ball, racquetball, soccer ball, water polo ball, and more!

1.5 clock hours or .15 CEU available

Are you aware of the increase in immigrants in America is the largest of any time period since World War II? The proportion of these new immigrants is changing our employment, business and schools. The population of the 21st century will bring a high proportion of ethnic minorities. Most research suggests that our work worlds will reflect even greater cultural diversity. This brings new learning opportunities for interpreters who encounter Deaf consumers and their families.

Interpreters might be familiar with their own cultural heritage and background, but unfamiliar with persons from a different racial/ethnic background.
