Mainstream Teachers about Including Deaf or Hard of Hearing Students
Vermeulen, Jorine A.; Denessen, Eddie; Knoors, Harry
Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies, v28 n2 p174-181 Feb 2012
This study is aimed at teachers' classroom practices and their beliefs and emotions regarding the inclusion of deaf or hard of hearing (d/hh) students in mainstream secondary schools. Nine teachers in two schools were interviewed about the inclusion of d/hh students. These teachers were found to consider the d/hh students' needs in their teaching practice. However, they showed less willingness to be considerate when the student showed a negative work attitude. With regard to teachers' emotions, positive as well as negative emotions were reported, like enjoyment and frustration. Based on our findings, teachers' pedagogies in inclusive classrooms are discussed. (Contains 1 table.)
