Interpreting in K-12 Settings Series: 

Physical Science Concepts

Designed for interpreters working in educational settings, Christopher A. N. Kurz, Ph.D. and Sarah Sarchet, distinguished Science Professors at National Technical Institute of the Deaf at RIT, will explain common physical science concepts and terms found in K-12 middle and high school physical science classes.

Providing access to instruction in conceptually accurate form is critical for Deaf students in K-12 grades when students are developing foundational knowledge.  Student success as they progress through school and more advanced math courses will depend on a strong conceptual foundation.  Further, common core curriculum requires students to have a conversational mastery within a higher level of rigor overall.  

This workshop is appropriate for any professional or para-professional providing services in K-12 DHH educational settings, including interpreters, teachers and instructional aides. 


This workshop is part of a series of workshops designed for interpreters working in K-12 educational settings.  Please watch for more workshops coming in the following months!

9:00 am - 1:00 pm
