Constructions of Educational Meaning in the Narratives of Four Deaf Women Teachers.
Compton, Mary V.
American Annals of the Deaf, v142 n5 p356-62 Dec 1997
In this ethnographic study, narrative analysis was used to describe how four deaf women make sense of their lives as teachers. The women disclose their beliefs concerning teaching, their deafness, and their connection with the deaf community. The study notes the influence of the institutional cultures of both deaf and hearing communities and of the residential school for students with deafness. (DB)
