Series: Perspectives on Deafness

Educational Interpreting

Show Summary Details


This chapter argues that the assumption that mainstream education—supported by sign language interpreting—can provide deaf students with fair and appropriate public education may be unfounded. It describes research that emphasizes the need to understand better the complex personal and functional interactions of students, instructors, interpreters, and settings if educational interpreting—and interpreted education— is to be optimally beneficial for deaf students.

Keywords: emotional interpreting; sign language interpreting; classroom interpreting; deaf students; learning; deaf education
