Adopting Bilingual Education: An Australian School Community's Journey.
Komesaroff, Linda
Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, v6 n4 p299-314 Fall 2001
This study describes changes at an Australian school for the deaf toward a language policy favoring the increased use of Australian Sign Language and bilingual pedagogy. Teachers' dissatisfaction with educational outcomes and current practices propelled these changes. Beliefs about language policy and practices are explored, as are the implications for change.
