|Social Constructions of Deafness|
From Reference & Research Book News
In this examination of the role of schools in the social construction of language and culture for deaf children, author Horejes intertwines reflections on his lived experiences both personally and academically, as a deaf student and as a researcher. He observes two kindergarten classes for deaf children, one spoken and the other in sign language, and ponders the ideal pedagogy for deaf children. He identifies positive constructions of deafness and considers larger critical justice issues related to deafness.
Thomas P. Horejes is an assistant professor in the Department of History, Philosophy, Religion, and Sociology at Gallaudet University.
