Non-Manual Signals: ASL Markers (NEW!)
This workshop has a focus on non-manual signals, which are not distinctive "hand signs" yet are essential language morphemes. Interpreters will analyze and apply these grammatical markers, which involve eye and head movements, facial movements and body postures rather than the use of "signs" as distinct lexical elements. Video clips and discussion will increase interpreters' confidence in the use of non-manual markers (non-manual morphemes). (0.4 RID CEUs available)

♥Visible Words: The Art of Storytelling With Classifiers
Let’s create better visual imagery with ASL classifiers! Maybe you’ve wondered: Are there any new classifiers? Which classifiers best express certain ideas? How can we use classifiers most effectively? ASL classifiers are simply handshapes used to convey action and ideas in concise and visually articulate ways. Let’s polish our storytelling by improving visual imagery with classifiers. This workshop will offer hands-on practice in using classifier handshapes with creativity and precision. Move away from thinking in English and stringing signs together. Let handshapes tell the story! (0.4 RID CEUs available)

♥ENGLISH EQUIVALENTS: Whoa! Train Zoom Gone. Did You See What She Signed? What did she mean by that and how can I say it in English?
English Equivalents help the student take signs that do not have just one translation in English and help the participant become aware of idiomatic English translations along with some technical vocabulary associated with particular signs. English Equivalents in ASL will help you confidently continue the flow of information exchange from ASL to English and from English to ASL.
