Supporting the Literacy Development of Students Who Are Deaf/Hard of Hearing in Inclusive Classrooms
Dostal, Hannah; Gabriel, Rachael; Weir, Joan
Reading Teacher, v71 n3 p327-334 Nov-Dec 2017
Students who are deaf or hard of hearing present unique opportunities and challenges for literacy instruction in mainstream classrooms. By addressing the specific needs of this diverse student community, teachers are given the chance to sharpen instruction and create learning opportunities for the entire class. The authors discuss two easy-to-follow principles that will increase literacy outcomes for students who are deaf or hard of hearing and all other learners by making content and thinking visible and optimizing access to the language and thoughts of all readers and writers. Practical tips and strategies are based on research and experience across a range of settings, including schools for the deaf with signing students, and mainstream classrooms with students who use listening and spoken language are included.
