Monthly Book Discussion

  • Sale
  • $95.00

Our on-line interpreter book discussions are a way for professional interpreters to discuss relevant texts with colleagues across the country (and abroad), moderated and overseen by RID Sponsor: Ginevra Deianni.  Book clubs are 1 month long (4 weeks, specified), with a weekly guided reflection question to answer on-line.  Book is not included. Copyright laws require participants to purchase their own book at any authorized bookseller of their choice (Amazon, B&N, etc), in their preferred format.  Many books have an e-book option, and some are available for rental at your local library. There is no specific time to log on for this program - participants follow weekly deadlines for posting responses at their own pace to keep the group on track together. Flexibility & extensions are offered as needed.

Participants write a weekly reflection about the book we read through guiding questions posted to our discussion board, and respond to each other to create meaningful dialogue on the topic. We use Google Groups for our on-line discussion.  Having a gmail account provides the most seamless experience, but other emails are accepted on this platform.  CEUs are awarded and posted to RID members transcript at the end of each session upon successful completion.  All RID CEUs are overseen & administered by Ginevra Deianni, RID Sponsor.  To register for an upcoming bookclub, see below:

"Deaf & Hearing Siblings in Conversation" 

by: Marla Berkowitz & Judith Jonas

Together let's explore the unique relationship between Deaf & hearing siblings: what family, community, social, and cultural impacts do siblings have to navigate together?  What does research say about birth order and how does Deaf culture change these dynamics?  How have accessibility, (or lack of), audism, and the ADA directed their relationships and life experiences?  Join us for a deeply enlightening month where we create space to honor this relationship and its impacts.

Upon registration, an invitation to join the closed discussion group and RID paperwork for CEUs.  Participants must purchase their own book (available at any book seller, Kindle & library loan). There is no specific time participants need to be on-line. Weekly reflections are posted at the pace of the reader.
