Construction of Meaning in the Authentic Science Writing of Deaf Students.
Lang, Harry G.; Albertini, John A.
Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, v6 n4 p258-84 Fall 2001
This study examined how deaf students construct meaning through writing during authentic science activities. Analysis of writing samples (N=228) indicated that certain process writing strategies were differentially useful including writing prompts used by teachers, focus for the writing, follow-up to the initial writing activity, the teacher's content knowledge, and the teacher's ability to interpret student writing.
