Written in a workbook fashion andnbsp;designed as a teaching / learning vehicle,Building ASL Interpreting and Translation Skillsnbsp;is for students taking courses in American Sign Language (levels I, II or III),nbsp;as well as students enrolled in interpreting programs.nbsp; The written English narratives are designed for translation, interpreting and transliterating with over 80 examples on the companion DVD signed by both native Deaf individuals and nationally certified interpreters. nbsp; The book is divided into four parts. Part I: The first part of the text consists of 24 chapters that provide readers with an overview of a variety of ASL grammatical features.nbsp; Each chapter includes an example glossed into ASL to provide students with a model for translation, each of which are signed on the accompanying DVD, followed bynbsp;narratives for student practice that gradually increase in length and difficulty.nbsp; Part II: The second part of the text consists of 20 chapters covering additional grammatical features.nbsp; The selections become increasingly longer in length.nbsp; Selections in the first several chapters of Part II are also signed by a Deaf individual on the companion DVD.nbsp; As the selections become longer, a nationally certified interpreter interprets selected narratives modeling the ASL principle described in the chapter.nbsp; Part III: The third part of the text is devoted to exercises that focus on building automaticity when confronting multiple meaning words, idioms, and college level vocabulary.nbsp; These selections are longer in length and are designed to provide interpreters with source material that covers a wide variety of topics.nbsp;nbsp; Part IV: The fourth part of the textnbsp;includes narratives, lectures, and passages from texts that might be read in a high school or college class.nbsp;
