Interpreters and the DCMP: They Help Busy Teachers

I am an interpreter in the Michigan public schools. When I began interpreting at the secondary school level in 1996, I discovered that the majority of our media center's video collection was NOT captioned, even though we were a large, urban school with a center-based deaf education program for many years! Since then I have moved into an elementary placement, where I discovered a similar lack of captioned media. From Leslie Darling about asl-interpreters, educators
