Resources: Picture Analysis
Multiple pictures are provided below which represent the different settings legal interpreters could work in. The pictures are provided for the purpose of conducting an analysis to better understand the complexities of the interaction and the people involved.
The analysis of any picture below could be used with the various Legal Interpreting Skill Development activity guides. The activity guides for Case Study Analysis or Interpreting Lines of Questioning specifically could provide a visual space and players that could reveal the multi-layered complexities of the interaction in a specific setting.
Sheneman provides an ASL overview of this resource section and how it can be used.
Picture Analysis Steps:
- Select a photo that captures a setting in which interpreters might be involved.
- Create a description of a scenario based on the photo.
- Analyze the scenario.
Different approaches can be used in a picture analysis - applying Dean's and Pollard's Demand-Control Schema is one option while applying Systems Thinking is another option.
Demand-Control Schema identifies and analyzes the challenges (demands) present in an interaction and predicts the resources (controls) available to the interpreter in that setting.
Sample Demand-Control Schema Analysis
Systems Thinking explores how each person in an interaction relates to the judicial system overall.
Pictures for Analysis:
The following images were gathered from a variety of online resources. Some pictures provide a description of a possible scenario. The scenario description establishes a specific context and players within the interaction for analysis. Feel free to craft scenario descriptions for the pictures provided or to search the internet for additional images to use for picture analysis.
