Highlights of Workshop
Presenter: Dr. Laurene Gallimore – Professor, Gallaudet University
Day 1: “Whose Literacy is it?”
An exploration of issues related to developing literacy for Deaf students. Who has it? Who wants it? Who needs it? Who gets it? Who teaches it? How, and to whom? The positive and successful stories that diverse deaf children tell us of their education will be presented.
Day 2-5: “The dynamics of Natural Sign Language within literacy instruction”
A discussion of current trends and research in the Education of Deaf/Hard of Hearing students and implications for teaching competencies from bilingual education perspectives. Participants will have an opportunity to discuss teaching strategies and ideas on how to improve NSL/English literacy.
All JAD Staff should confirm through their Principal or Teacher-In-Charge requests for accommodation.
All other persons are invited to make their own arrangements.
