Texas State Technical Inst., Waco.
A project was undertaken to continue development of a curriculum for training interpreters for deaf persons enrolled in vocational education programs in Texas. Utilizing field consultants for specialized course development, project staff completed 11 interpreting modules and accompanying audiovisual prototypes. In addition, on-site visits were made to evaluate the use of the curriculum and to establish a mechanism for a reporting and evaluation procedure. A series of tangible products resulted from the project, including an updated annotated bibliography; curriculum modules and syllabi composed of objectives, activities, teacher goals, and student handbooks; and audiovisual scripts. (Included in the appendixes--which make up the bulk of this document--are a weekly report form; a sample contract; an instructor guide; and modules on medical and mental health interpreting, social service interpreting, legal interpreting, American Sign Language (ASL) linguistics for interpreters, the culture and community of deaf persons, deaf and blind interpreting, minimal language skills interpreting, and oral interpreting.
