Is the Sign-Language Used to Excess in Teaching Deaf-Mutes?
Gallaudet, Edward M.
American Annals of the Deaf, v142 n3 p21-23 Jul 1997
This reprinted article discusses the overemphasis of sign language, which contributes to their isolation, in teaching students with deafness. Teachers are urged to avoid signing in the classroom when spelling on fingers or using written language will convey the same information. (CR)
