INTRODUCING:

Language and Literacy Curriculum Guide for Deaf children from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade. Not a book of day-by-day lesson plans but an organizer of language instruction by function and use.

BASED ON FOUR PRINCIPLES:

-Language is best learned by using it

-Functions and uses of language should direct instruction

-All aspects of language (semantics, pragmatics, and syntax) need to be included in instruction

-All instruction should be done within a meaningful context

CHAPTERS INCLUDE:

-Language Functions and Use

-Conversational Features

-Semantic/Syntactic Structures

-Sentence Structures

-Teaching Strategies

-Writing Evaluation

-Language Evaluation

The ultimate goal of this curriculum is to develop literacy skills in all of our students and to impart proficiency in English. This guide will be a valuable resource to elementary and secondary teachers of deaf children.
