Registration opens Monday, May 11th at wsrid.com/events with a 15-person limit for each webinar.

If a webinar still has room two days prior to the event, members may add it as a 3rd event.

Message Analysis in ASL

May 27th @ 4–6pm (PST) — Presenter: Paul Glaser

This 2-hour webinar lays a solid foundation to message analysis. Participants will use a step-by-step approach to identify the theme (gist) of a passage, as well as the main points, details, function, register, and affect of several ASL statements. Through practical application of the message analysis process, participants will discover that there is more to the message than just what is on the surface – and for an interpretation to truly be effective, it must take into consideration all of these components.
