Scott Community College (SCC) is hosting an American Sign Language Interpreter Workshop on Saturday, April 25 from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. at SCC's Student Life Center. The workshop is approved for 0.6 CEUs for all interpreters.
The workshop will feature Crom Saunders. Saunders grew up in Northern California, graduating from California State University, Sacramento with a M.A. in Creative Writing.

Saunders also has interpreted dozens of plays and has taught ASL linguistics and theatrical workshops across the nation. He currently teaches at the ITP program featured at Columbia College, Chicago. You can check out some of his work at thecromsaunders.com or search “Crom Clog” on YouTube.
- Green Eggs and Hamlet: Interpreting Shakespeare and Dr. Seuss, 9 a.m. - 12 p.m.
When asked to interpret Shakespeare or Dr. Seuss, do you start looking for the nearest exit? Have no fear! This workshop will allow you to look at bodies of text that are traditionally established in content, context and tone, and the obstacles in translation that come with these traditional views. You’ll acquire tools to translate text into ASL without sacrificing content, and preserving the fun and linguistic integrity of these language masters - Dr. Seuss and William Shakespeare (and other writers with similar styles).
- Nye Who?: Interpreting Material with Scientific/Medical Terminology, 1 - 4 p.m.
How do you interpret a chemistry class? Describe osmosis? What’s the sign for photosynthesis? How can you visually describe schizophrenia? This workshop will help you develop general tools for dealing with specialized vocabulary in several branches of scientific study, and broaden the use of your already developed skills to turn jargon into understandable and signable concepts.
