Deaf and Multilingual PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Deaf and Multilingual free pdf This book is about deaf people learning spoken/written foreign languages. To date there has been a dearth of information on this subject, and in that vacuum there has been a tendency to think that deaf learners should be steered away from foreign language learning. This book hopes to go some way towards filling the gap and correcting that impression. The book is written primarily for those teaching and supporting deaf learners attending standard foreign language learning classes. It may also be of interest to deaf learners themselves, their parents, and those professionals who are involved in making decisions about curriculum content for deaf learners. Written in an accessible style, it offers practical no-nonsense guidance on accessible language teaching, curriculum and lesson planning, and acting as a support worker for deaf students in foreign language classes.

About Judith Mole

Hilary McColl taught French and English in mainstream schools in England, France and Scotland before being seconded as Scottish National Curriculum Development Officer in 1994 to examine how learners with special educational needs were being catered for in modern languages. The resulting compendium of advice to schools included a section on teaching hearing impaired learners. Hilary's own increasing deafness led her to give up language teaching in 1996. Now working as an independent trainer, consultant and writer, she has particular interest in bringing together teachers who specialise in modern languages and those who specialise in supporting learners, believing that collaborative working is the best way to ensure viable modern language programmes for learners with special educational needs. Judith Mole is the director of Direct Learn Services Ltd. She has been working in education since 1992 and started working with Deaf learners whilst at college. She has since managed support units for Deaf learners both at Sheffield Hallam University and at the University of Wolverhampton, UK. She has worked as a project manager and researcher to create online British Sign Language/English dictionaries for various academic subjects and has written booklets for academic and support staff. In 1996 she completed a PGCert in TESOL. She is the chair of the Supporting Deaf People online conferences. Having grown up in Europe, she has native fluency in German. She is currently struggling to learn Spanish and Catalan. Mireille Vale currently works as a sign language interpreter at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. She is a qualified BSL/English Interpreter and has completed a Postgraduate Diploma in BSL/English Interpreting and a Master's degree in Sign Linguistics at Durham University. Micky's interest in foreign languages arises from personal experience as a learner of various spoken and signed languages, and as a Dutch person who has lived and studied abroad for nearly half her life. She briefly taught Dutch to English speakers both privately and through Durham University's language centre. Micky has worked as a communication support worker, note-taker, electronic note-taker and interpreter in all phases of education since 1995. This work has included supporting deaf learners in foreign language classes (Spanish at high school level and beginner's Japanese at University level). In 2000, Micky was the Project Leader for the development of a course in 'Support Work with Deaf Learners' for communication support workers and deaf educational instructors in pre-16 education. She has also been involved in the production of the Microbooks CD-Rom 'Signs for GCSE English'.
