Do We Need a National Standards-Based K-12 Deaf Studies Curriculum? An Analytic History of Trends and Discourse in Development of Deaf Studies Curriculum
Zernovoj, Alexander
Online Submission
This study provides a complete review of discussion and development leading up to the current trends in Deaf Studies curriculum development, and also analyzes existing known curriculum (or curriculum-like) materials to help inform development of an ideal standards-based Deaf Studies curriculum. The common shared arguments identified in this study's literature review for using the Deaf Studies curriculum were to empower the deaf students and integrate a Deaf Studies curriculum across various academic subject areas. This study also shows a lack of emphasis on integrating Deaf Studies in any school curriculum due to its limited publications in a literature review of all deaf-related academic journals and other deaf-related periodicals and magazines. The findings from this study led to eight recommendations for the next several courses of action that need to be undertaken to make possible the infusion of the Deaf Studies curriculum into our legislation-dictated (e.g., NCLB) and standards-based deaf education.
