Aspects of a Communication Curriculum for Hearing-Impaired Pupils: Report of the Second National Workshop on Language Curriculum Development for Hearing-Impaired Pupils. Occasional Paper Number Four.
Power, D. J., Ed.; Hollingshead, Anne, Ed.
The document presents findings and discussion from a 1981 Australian workshop on language curriculum development for hearing impaired students. The first 11 papers, unattributed, address the following issues regarding development of a language curriculum: content, principles, levels of language, techniques and materials, features of conversational approaches in language programing, features of task-oriented approaches, and features of specific teaching approaches (especially at the syntactic level and emphasizing the Tate Oral English program. Test of Syntactic Abilities, and the Discourse Analysis Approach). Information on evaluation includes papers on evaluating instructional materials as well as student competence. Four author-contributed papers conclude the volume:"Developing Language in Young Disabled Children" (D. Power and G. Elias); *Issues Raised by Some Recent Research for the Teaching of Language to Hearing-Impaired Pupils" (A. Hollingshead); "Functional-Notional Approaches to Language Programming for Hearing-Impaired Pupils" (T. Hodgens); and "Comments on the Tate Oral English Program" (D. Power and G. Elias). (CL)
