Deaf Heritage: A Narrative History of Deaf America

This book is a wonderful collection of information, stories, pictures, art work, historical facts, humor and more. All this and it's all about Deaf people, their history their accomplishments, and their struggles.

Gannon, Jack R. (1981).Deaf Heritage: A Narrative History of Deaf America.Silver Springs, MD: National Association of the Deaf.


This is the most complete resource I've found on the history and culture of the Deaf and is also my favorite. There is so much information in this book I still have not read everything- you may not want to read everything but there is something for everyone in this book. Some of the information might be above younger students comprehension level but many of the stories are so wonderfully told they could be presented to all age levels. For more deaf culture curriculum materials see my theme unit reference section.
