Improving the Language and Learning of Students Who Are Deaf. PEPNet Tipsheet
Livingston, Sue
The saying "Good teaching is good teaching" holds considerable truth when thinking about exemplary practices used in educating students who are deaf. Some adaptations not withstanding, educating deaf or hearing students well should mean engaging in similar pedagogical practices that link language-learning with content-learning. All students, deaf or hearing, must learn both the language and the content of the courses they take, making all teachers teachers of the language, reading, and writing of their specific subject area. Content, of course, is set according to the dictates of each teacher's specific discipline, but how might language, reading, and writing be embedded into content in ways that will enable all students--and especially deaf students--to learn from the ideas of others and to put new ideas into their own words? This paper offers some suggestions. [For the Spanish-language version of this document, see ED534416.]
