The Role of Simplicity in Deaf Education.
Welch, Olga M.
There is a need for applying the requirements of simplicity to education for deaf students. Application of the rule of simplicity, (which states that if an activity, assessment tool, or theory complicates, rather than illuminates, abandon it). requires organization and the absence of unnecessary educational clutter. Changes in teacher behavior and organization and applications of the rule of simplicity to curriculum development (including the use of the planning web), classroom management (including specification of desirable classroom conditions, the analysis of existing classroom conditions, and the assessment of managerial effectiveness), and language development.
