Workshop Descriptions:

EIPA Assessment and State Standard Requirements - presented by Carol Carrothers
This workshop will discuss the new standards in Washington State for educational interpreters. We will discuss the Educational Performance Assessment, what areas are assessed, feedback given, and how to prepare for the assessment.

 ~ The EIPA workshop will be presented in spoken English. Accommodations will be provided if requested by Friday, February 14, 2014.

Math and ASL - presented by Paul Glaser

There is increasing importance being placed on the role mathematics signs play in teaching and learning in the classroom. Many teachers and interpreters have different signs for certain mathematics terms and it is possible that a lack of standardization may influence learning. There is a particular need to discuss perceptions of technical signs in order to help prepare new teachers and interpreters who pursue careers in mathematics education for the deaf. The present workshop was designed to assist new and experienced mathematics teachers and interpreters for the deaf as well as students interested in learning about mathematics signs. Most teachers and interpreters did not have signs for advanced mathematics terms and fingerspelled those terms to avoid inventing signs. This workshop helps you to be familiar with mathematics terms and how to apply them to interpreting settings. Participants will learn how to interpret in language of math for Deaf students in K-12.

  ~ The Math and ASL workshop will be presented in ASL only. No voice interpreters will be provided.
