Creating Multicultural School Climate for Deaf Children and Their Families. Sharing Ideas.
Sass-Lehrer, Marilyn; Gerner de Garcia, Barbara; Rovins, Michele
This monograph offers a variety of suggestions for creating a supportive multicultural climate for deaf children and their families. A section on responding to changing needs notes the special needs of deaf children from diverse backgrounds and suggests 7 strategies for developing cultural competence and 11 suggestions for improving outreach services. Eight strategies address various instructional approaches; five guidelines identify desirable features in instructional materials; and six actions are urged to address leadership issues. A resource guide identifies general references, readings for teachers, books for students (by grade level), instructional guides and handbooks, and World Wide Web resources. (Contains approximately 125 references.) (DB)
