Mertens, Donna M.
Science Education, v75 n4 p429-42 Jul 1991
Hearing-impaired students (32) and staff (25) of a 4-week summer program were interviewed. Among the conclusions are that teachers of hearing-impaired students should expect heterogeneity in terms of their preferred mode of communication, reading ability, lip reading ability, interest in science, etc. Effective instructional techniques include short lectures, active learner involvement, and frequent feedback to the instructor.
