National Webinar - Engaging Deaf Learners in the Mainstream Classroom

Deaf students can succeed in inclusive settings, but only if the appropriate conditions are in place. It's important for classroom teachers to know what those conditions are, and to be able to answer a variety of questions, including: 

How do you adapt classroom games and activities to include a deaf student? 

How do you word a test question so it can be correctly interpreted by a student who has never heard spoken English? 

How do you arrange the classroom optimally for a student who uses a cochlear implant and where should that student sit? 

How do you support a student's self confidence in an environment where he or she is the only deaf learner in class? 

Find the answer to these questions and more via "Engaging Deaf learners in the Mainstream Classroom", a free web conference hosted by LEARN NC on April 18, 2011 from 3:30 - 5:00 p.m. 

Three distinguished experts on deaf education will share their knowledge and answer questions on topics including instruction, communication, and classroom management. 

David Martin, Ph.D. Professor/Dean Emeritus, Gallaudet University 

Mary v. Compton, Ed.D., Associate Professor, Department of specialized Education Services, UNC - Greensboro
