Office of Research and Development
The purpose of this study was to analysze teaching behaviors of teachers of the hearing impaired at elementary school level. Subjects were 72 teachers who came from school for the deaf or special class/resource room; among them 35 taught math, 37 taught reading. Videotapes of their instruction were reviewed. The main results were: More than 80% of teachers followed an enthusiastic style of teaching, used visual/tactile aids, made a summary for each section, explained important concepts clearly and completely, guided students to find out all possible answers to problems, emphasized comprehension, analysis, application, applied students' personal experiences, offered opportunity, observed students' understanding, encouraged students to express their own opinions, associated new learning with past ones, and emphasized learning objects at the beginning of the class. Unfortunatedly, 82% of teachers demonstrating such behaviors did not faciliate speechreading/observing sign language. About 20% to 30% of teachers did not motivate students, and explained course content without using daily experiences. Generally speaking, there were no significant differences in teaching behaviors between reading teachers and math teachers. Teachers from schools exclusively for the deaf used sign language and oral as primary communication mode, while those who from special class or resource rooms used oral as their primary communication mode.
