Studies in Interpretation, Volume 10

From The Midwest Book Review

More Than Meets the Eye: Revealing the Complexities of an Interpreted Education is the tenth volume in the Studies in Interpretation series covering sign language interpreters and public schools. Over 80% of all deaf children are mainstreamed, but few of their teachers can sign well enough to offer them full access and many K-12 interpreters fulfill roles beyond interpreting, making educational decisions with wide-ranging impact. This considers the roles of K-12 interpreters and comes from the author’s analysis at three different schools, and offers important keys to understanding resources, interpretation modifications, and interactions between the deaf and hearing worlds. The result is a powerful account recommended for any special education collection.

Melissa B. Smith is a professor in the American Sign Language/English Interpreter Training Program at Palomar College.
