An Educator's Perspective: Five "E's" to Success with Common Core Standards
Neria, Christy M.
Odyssey: New Directions in Deaf Education, v15 p4-8 2014
As a result of the implementation--and rigor--of the Common Core State Standards, many educators are looking for a different teaching approach to make content accessible to all students. Successful implementation of these standards for deaf and hard of hearing students can be achieved through what Christy Neria calls the "Five E's." These are: (1) Engagement; (2) Encouragement; (3) Expectations; (4) Expression; and (5) Experience. Neria details these principals in this article, and writes that the implementation of the Common Core State Standards puts pressure on everyone--and there is no magical pedagogical equation to ensure students' mastery--but these five principles may be stepping stones in supporting deaf and hard of hearing students on this rigorous journey.
