Auditory/Oral Birth-Kindergarten Teacher Preparation: A Research Based Model
Compton, Mary V.; Niemeyer, Judith A.; Michael, Sonia
Volta Review, v104 n2 p93-106 2004
The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) has developed a new interdisciplinary teacher preparation concentration to address the need for early intervention and early childhood personnel to work with young children who are deaf or hard of hearing and their families. This concentration focuses on a spoken language approach and incorporates family-focused intervention, technology, and theoretical and applied knowledge. Students are involved in a variety of field experiences throughout their coursework, which culminates with a semester long student teaching practicum. Upon graduation, students are prepared for North Carolina teacher licensure in both Hearing Impaired K-12 and Birth-Kindergarten.
