Awareness Training and the Oral Interpreter.
Gamble, Teri Kwal; Gamble, Michael W.
Since imaginary awareness--as the core of the oral interpreter's art--must be preceded by both an awareness of internal events and an awareness of external events, awareness training can be the most effective means of helping interpreters develop their art. Two models of the awareness development process, a hierarchy of response levels and a mind-sense-body cycle, provide instructors with useful teaching strategies. Once students have developed an alert sensory apparatus and a responsive body, they are ready to experience literature and then to interpret it orally for others. (JM)
