1:15 p.m. "ASL in Action, through Deaf eyes" This is a fun-filled, hands-on workshop where David-Lee invites you to see the world “through Deaf eyes”. First, he will shine a light on what things look like in the real world and how they can be represented by ‘doing’ rather than signing. Next, the camera will be on you as you audition for a starring role in “ASL in Action”. Working individually and in groups, David-Lee will challenge you to try on different characters and play with a variety of emotional responses to everyday events. Finally, you will have an opportunity to put it all into action by practicing these techniques so your work can be more effective when you go back into the classroom to interpret. Be prepared to have fun, participate, stretch yourself a bit, and learn something new.
