Signing ‘Spiritual Stuff’ with Jo Dishaw

photoSaturday, October 4, 2014  9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

  •  Are you interested in learning Christian signs??? 
  • How about ASL Bible verses and stories??? 
  • The transfer of passive –to- active verbs???

Then this is the workshop for you! There will be plenty of hands-on activities to help the stories come alive with the use of space, classifiers, ASL syntax, and facial expression. This workshop will focus on developing/enhancing skills needed for interpreting in Christian settings. Expressing thoughts on our hands can be fun!!!

There will be a question and answer time, so please bring questions and ideas!

This workshop is geared toward interpreters, ITP students and anyone interested in Christian religious settings.
