Teaching feelings to deaf children is only one need that teachers must keep in mind as they prepare for a new school year. However, teachers should put as much forethought into classroom management as they do into their curriculum. According to Wong and Wong (1998), the most important factor in student learning is classroom management. In other words, how a classroom is managed determines how well its students learn. This article outlines a few of the things that teachers of the deaf can do to improve students' behavior. The author notes how he helped teachers approach the subject of emotions with their very young deaf students. Being proactive about behavior should help reduce the amount of time teachers spend reacting to outbursts. However, deaf children have unique needs. To address their unique needs, the author presents tips to follow.
