This course focuses on effective and evidence-based practices for teaching students who are deaf and hard of hearing (DHH). Teacher candidates will identify the challenges that students who are DHH face when learning content in curricular subject areas. They will develop proficiency using instructional strategies across a variety of service delivery models and instructional settings. They will learn how to select, adapt, and modify curriculum to meet the unique and diverse needs of students who are DHH. Attention will be given to the development of lesson and unit plans that meet the state core curriculum standards as well as incorporate language, literacy, and IEP goals. Teacher candidates will analyze the social and emotional needs of students with hearing loss and their families. Discussion will include the needs of students and families with culturally diverse backgrounds and students with additional disabilities. Emphasis will be placed on the roles and responsibilities of teachers of the DHH to train, consult, and collaborate with families and other professionals.
