A Choice Oustandig Academic Book
This is a truly excellent book in the field of deaf education. The text is divided into three main parts. In part one, the editors cite the need for a continuing inclusion of deaf children in the education mainstream, and yet stress the need for an expansion of the “general education” curriculum that has seldom been provided to deaf and hearing-impaired students. Although an emphasis on communication for these students remains a focal point for much of the deaf child’s education, traditional subjects such as math, social studies, and science must also be incorporated into their academic regimen. Part two of the text describes those critical subjects and why they should be taught. Part three offers some exceedingly good methods for teaching these subjects to the deaf learner, and this section is truly the best part of the text. Teaching strategies found here have a strong research base and offer clear directions for the teaching practitioner. The book is easy to understand and will be a useful tool for anyone working with hearing-impaired students, but is especially good for general educators who have deaf children in their classrooms. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through practitioners.
