(p.42) Chapter 3 Everybody Wins: Teaching Deaf and Hearing Students Together
Worlds Apart?

Ian M. Sutherland

Yale University Press

This chapter illustrates how teaching disabled students is an opportunity that most American professors have not yet had, but the chance that they will in the future is increasing. It addresses the professor of foreign language who has a deaf student in her course for the first time, and who seeks help in teaching that student effectively. The tableau envisages a single deaf student in a first-year Latin class, but the didactic principles described here can apply to situations of more than one student, to different languages, and to courses beyond the first year. The student may or may not have studied foreign language before, but this is his first exposure to Latin. The discussion assumes that the student is profoundly deaf, not hard of hearing, and that he employs sign language, not oral speech, as his preferred means of communication.

Keywords:   disabled students, American professors, foreign language, deaf student, sign language, oral speech, Latin
