Inside Practice of Science Teachers for Students with Hearing Impairments in Botswana Primary Schools
Mukhopadhyay, Sourav; Moswela, Emmanuel
International Journal of Special Education, v25 n3 p57-67 2010
In this qualitative study the authors describe how students with severe to profound hearing impairments learn science subjects in primary school in Botswana. Twenty-two teachers from two centres of deaf education in Botswana were recruited purposively to take part in the current study. Multilayered data collection methods were utilized to gain an understanding of classroom practice of science teaching. A constant comparison method was employed to analyse the data. Findings revealed four themes that highlighted the experiences of science teaching. These include curriculum related issues, language related issues, and resources related issues, and teaching methods. Through this study, the investigators gained an insight of current practices of science education in primary schools in Botswana for students with hearing impairments. The findings of this study could shape policy on educational support for students with hearing impairments and provide a framework for alternate assessment for learners with hearing impairment.
