The Role of Interpreters in Inclusive Classrooms.
Antia, Shirin D.; Kreimeyer, Kathryn H.
American Annals of the Deaf, v146 n4 p355-65 Oct 2001
A qualitative 3-year case study followed three deaf interpreters in an inclusive school. Results of interviews indicated that, in addition to sign interpreting, the interpreters clarified teacher directions, facilitated peer interaction, tutored the deaf children, and kept teachers and special educators informed of the deaf children's progress. Differences in perception of the interpreter's role were also found. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
