A Strategy to Improve Deaf Students' Writing through the Use of Glosses of Signed Narratives
by Susan Mozzer-Mather
Working Paper 90-4

This 17-page paper, written by a deaf researcher, describes results of a small study of the effects of an experimental strategy designed to help deaf students whose first language is American Sign Language (ASL) manage the cognitive demands of writing in their second language, English. In brief, the writing strategy appeared to help by enabling deaf students first to produce a videotaped narrative in ASL, then to write and revise the same narrative in English as a separate task with the aid of written glosses prepared by the investigator.

Unlocking the Curriculum: Principles for Achieving Access in Deaf Education
by Robert E. Johnson, Scott K. Liddell, and Carol J. Erting
Working Paper 89-3

Three Gallaudet researchers articulate the view that deaf students' low average academic achievement levels are not results of learning deficits inherently associated with deafness but of problems in the communication practices of the students' teachers. This 29-page paper, which advocates that teachers of deaf students be competent users of ASL, has become the object of controversy in deaf education programs nationwide.

Implications and Complications for Deaf Students of the Full Inclusion Movement
edited by Robert C. Johnson and Oscar P. Cohen
Occasional Paper 94-2

This 80-page publication, a collaboration between the Gallaudet Research Institute (GRI) and the Conference of Educational Administrators Serving the Deaf (CEASD), contains seven papers that examine problems associated with the inclusion of all deaf and hard of hearing students in regular education programs. Authors of the papers include researchers from the GRI as well as deaf and hearing educators of the deaf, members of professional deafness-related associations, researchers from the National Technical Institute for the Deaf (NTID), and others. While none of the papers advocates the elimination of inclusion as an option, all the papers discuss the potential negative consequences of making inclusion the only option for all deaf students. This document has already proved invaluable to deaf consumers, parents of deaf children, policymakers, and schools and programs serving deaf students.

DISCLAIMER: This website contains documents with terms that may be considered by today's reader as outdated and even offensive. For example, the term "hearing impairment" is sometimes used as a category for levels of hearing loss, such as hard of hearing and deaf. Some people now see cultural identification and communication preference as defining characteristics behind terms such as hard of hearing and deaf, and they do not favor terms conveying medical distinctions and loss. Yet we recognize that removing and changing terms may alter the precise meaning of the scientific author. A solution may be found by expanding the scope of future research to include non-medical perspectives.
