In this 3-hour workshop, we will review the types of feeds an interpreter can use to support their colleague as well as methods for feeding. In particular, we will look at process, correction, enhancement, and confirmation feeds (Hoza, 2010). Modalities will include through ASL, fingerspelling, written and spoken English or forms of pidgin sign. This will be done through a brief review of the types of feeds and then by working in teams from an English source that will be transliterated for Deaf interpreters, into an ASL target text.
By the end of the symposium, the participants should be able to:
1. List and describe the four types of feeds found by Hoza (2010)
2. Accurately apply the labels for the feeds to their teaming behaviors
3. Identify which feeds they employ more often
4. Explain which modality of feed is successful in different contexts
