My Lips are Moving But What am I Saying????

Analyzing Your English Product

Sabrina Smith, Ph.D. CI/CT, NIC: Master, Ed: K-12

Date: February 27, 2021

Time: 8:30am - 3 pm

0.6 RID CEUs Sponsored by VRID (Pending)

Location: Online Format Workshop Description: This workshop is the sister workshop to "What Did I Just Sign: Analyzing Your ASL Product". This time we take a look at our English product. Participants will analyze their own products, after being videotaped, using several variations of rating forms in order to demonstrate knowledge of terminology used in the testing environment. The goal is to improve their ASL to English by understanding the tools used by raters to evaluate their product. The educational objective for this workshop is to teach the participants to be able to identify these areas of weakness and have the proper tools to strengthen these areas.

Participants need to bring a device to record themselves, it can be a phone, iPad, or any device that records audio as well as visual.
