Overview

This book, a companion to Marschark's Raising and Educating a Deaf Child, presents a summary of the current state-of-the-art in deaf education. With dramatic changes in deaf education over the past 30 years, this book considers what we now know, what we do not know, and what we should know about the education of deaf students. Taking a developmental perspective, the authors look first at the history of deaf education, and then at education as it begins at home and in the classroom, encompassing discussion about reading, American Sign Language, and school choice. The various programs available for deaf children and young adults are appraised, including details of the curriculum in English, math and science, and social studies. Using a research-based yet readable approach, the authors set aside the politics, rhetoric, and confusion that often accompanies such discussions. Rather, they clearly evaluate deaf education, explaining complex information in a way that is useful to a wide range of readers involved in deaf education, from parents and day care providers to elementary, high-school, and college teachers and other education professionals.
