Create a 6 pages page paper that discusses analysis of articles about deaf education. Humphries and Allen (2008) established the importance of bilingual fluency in ASL and cross-training sessions for deaf education (160). This research asserts that practices from bilingual education are essential for the training of teachers of D/HH students.
Humphries and Allen move away from the pedagogy, that views D/HH education as special education and that these students are developmentally abnormal. This research views D/HH students as learners who require a special learning environment that is socially accessible. Due to the lack of established models in this study, this research used self-critical processes to evaluate and develop a training curriculum. One such self-critical process was to establish feedback channels for students and training facilities. Humphries and Allen (2008) also used conducted a collaborative project with both pre-service and in-service teachers to assess the efficacy of the training program.
The research found out that deaf teachers developed a high degree of identification with the established D/HH pedagogy. The research established that integrating cultural development into the curriculum as well as emphasizing dual language literacy helped to develop the beliefs and ideologies of D/HH educators. The research established positive reviews from deaf students who applauded the importance of the new curriculum because it invigorates the beliefs and trends of the deaf community.
