Partners with a Purpose: The Consultant Teacher Model in Educating Deaf and Hard of Hearing Students
Mascia-Reed, Candi
Odyssey: New Directions in Deaf Education, v11 n1 p25-29 Spr-Sum 2010
Educating deaf and hard of hearing students is a rewarding yet complex endeavor. Students are the beneficiaries when educators consistently reflect on and dialogue about teaching strategies, curriculum, student expectations, and school culture beliefs and practices. In the Union Street School for the Deaf and the Hackensack High School Program for the Deaf, in Hackensack, New Jersey, each student's learning potential is maximized through an innovative educational model adapted from the Special Education Department in the Hackensack School District called the Consultant Teacher Model. In this model, instruction, resources, and support are provided by a quartet of participants: the consultant teacher, educational interpreter, general education teacher, and teacher assistant; the student is the fifth participant. In this article, the author discusses the consultant teacher model and how the model was used in the Union Street School for the Deaf and the Hackensack High School Program for the Deaf.
