Presented is a curriculum guide for the training of interpreters for the deaf consisting of 15 sections to be used as individual units or comprising a two part, 1 year course. The full course uses the text, Interpreting for Deaf People, as a guide and includes laboratory and practicum experiences. Curriculum guidelines include specific aims such as the improvement of the quantity and quality of interpreters for deaf persons, a rationale, criteria for the selection of interpreter trainers and interpreter trainees, an outline of the course of study, and a discussion of the labor market. Considered in the first half of the course are governing factors for any interpreting situation including the ethics of interpreter behavior, interpreter client relationships, linguistics, the physical setting, compensation, oral interpreting, reverse interpreting, and deaf blind interpreting. The second half of the course deals with interpretation in specific settings including the educational, mental health, medical, social work, vocational rehabilitation, legal, and religious settings. A final section considers the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf. Laboratory or practicum experiences are assigned for each section. See EC 001 454 for the text used in the course. (DB)
