58-IN-MIND: Multilingual Teaching Strategies for Diverse Deaf Students

by Debbie Golos; Marlon Kuntze; Kimberly Wolbers; Chris Kurz

A highly practical and engaging resource for current and future teachers, 58-IN-MIND describes and demonstrates theoretically-driven, research-based, and classroom-tested best practices for using American Sign Language and English in instruction across the curriculum. The multilingual and multimodal instructional strategies presented here are embedded in approaches that aid learning and foster well-being. This book will support teachers in creating meaningful educational experiences for Deaf students in all grades, from early childhood education through high school. Each chapter is written by a team of researchers and P–12 teachers with at least one Deaf coauthor. With seventy-five percent of the authors being Deaf, this is the first teaching methods book to harness the expertise of Deaf professionals at this level, highlighting their vital role in Deaf education and in shaping inclusive and effective learning environments. This book meets the need for a resource that recognizes the diversity of Deaf students by creating space in the classroom to honor their home/heritage languages, cultures, races, genders, abilities, hearing levels, and other multiple and intersecting identities. Written in a conversational tone, the book includes core recommendations for instruction of the targeted subject area, examples of key strategies, lessons and real stories from those working in the field, suggestions for practice, and recommended resources. “58-IN-MIND” in the title refers to the version of the ASL sign "stick" that is made on the forehead, which is equivalent to the English idiom “to stick in one's mind.” As in, when students learn in a culturally responsive manner, the learning is likely to stick. The title also alludes indirectly to the collective aspirations of the chapter authors that the practices discussed in the book will also stick in the readers’ minds, and thus have a transformative impact on the way Deaf students are taught.

The Abacus Made Easy: A Simplified Manual for Teaching the Cranmer Abacus

by Mae E Davidow

From the book: At Overbrook, [School for the Blind] Dr. Davidow was instrumental in establishing the use of the Cranmer Abacus as a part of the regular curriculum.

Ability Profiling and School Failure: One Child's Struggle to be Seen as Competent

by Kathleen M. Collins

Ability Profiling and School Failure, Second Edition explores the social and contextual forces that shape the appearance of academic ability and disability and how these forces influence the perception of academic underachievement of minority students. At the book’s core is the powerful case study of a competent fifth grader named Jay, an African American boy growing up in a predominantly white, rural community, who was excluded from participating in science and literacy discourses within his classroom community. In this new edition, researcher and teacher-educator Kathleen Collins situates the story of Jay’s struggle to be seen as competent within current scholarly conversations about the contextualized nature of dis/ability. In particular, she connects her work to recent research into the overrepresentation of minority students in special education, exploring the roles of situated literacies, classroom interactions, and social stereotypes in determining how some students come to be identified as "disabled." Ability Profiling and School Failure, Second Edition comprises a thorough investigation into the socially constructed nature of ability, identity, and achievement, illustrating the role of educational and social exclusion in positioning students within particular identities.

Ability Profiling and School Failure: One Child's Struggle to Be Seen As Competent

by Kathleen M. Collins Kathleen M Collins

Ability Profiling and School Failure: One Child's Struggle to Be Seen as Competent explores the social and contextual forces that shape the appearance of academic ability and disability and how these forces influence the perception of academic underachievement of minority students. It is a powerful case study of a competent fifth grader, an African American boy growing up in a predominantly white, rural community, who was excluded from participating in science and literacy discourses within his classroom community. The case study form allows for the integration of the story of the student's struggle to be seen as competent in school, a context where his teacher perceives him as learning disabled, with Collins' own perspective as a researcher and teacher-educator engaged in a professional development effort with the teacher. The contribution of this book is to make visible the situated and socially constructed nature of ability, identity, and achievement, and to illustrate the role of educational and social exclusion in positioning students within particular identities. Highly relevant across the field of education, this book will particularly interest researchers, graduate students, and professionals in literacy and science education, curriculum and instruction, sociocultural theories of learning, discourse analysis of classrooms, research on teaching and learning, special education, social foundations, and teacher education.

Ability Structure and Loss of Vision

by Jyrki Juurmaa

Psychological testing of the ability structures of the blind and sighted was commenced almost simultaneously during the first decades of this century. However, a majority of the studies concerning the blind, and the most crucial among them, sought to develop IQ-type test batteries, intended mainly for appraising their school achievement. By contrast, systematic studies have not been carried out to explore the relationships among different, mutually relatively independent traits and the quantitative contributions of such traits to different test performances. This lack of interest is perhaps due to the narrow range of occupations regarded as suitable for the blind: there has been no acute need for a more differentiated picture.

Able-bodied Like Me: Navigating And Balancing Cultures From The Seat Of My Pants

by Matt Glowacki

In his insightful new memoir, Able-Bodied like Me, Matt Glowacki, civility speaker and author, chronicles the changing attitudes in our society—and in himself—about what it means to be disabled. <P><P>In the 1970s, when Glowacki was born, disabilities were still considered something to hide. Despite being born without legs, Glowacki pushed back against this narrative. He didn’t consider himself disabled and thought the term imposed unneeded limitations. He also balked at the tone-deaf remarks of others. He didn’t want to be an “inspiration” to people without impairments or a convenient way for others to signal their own virtue. Glowacki wanted to simply live his life, and he clearly explains how harmful certain remarks and actions can be for people in the disabled community. <P><P>In his memoir, Glowacki lists eighteen points to ponder as you reflect on your own assumptions and actions. Glowacki also examines his own changing beliefs about the term “disability,” as well as society’s shifting perspective. <P><P>As Glowacki shares the challenges he and others face in their everyday lives, he also offers suggestions about how to foster an environment of mutual respect and understanding. Glowacki certainly doesn’t want your pity. He just wants you to listen.

Ableism in Education: Rethinking School Practices And Policies (Equity and Social Justice in Education #0)

by Gillian Parekh

How we organize children by ability in schools is often rooted in ableism. Ability is so central to schooling—where we explicitly and continuously shape, assess, measure, and report on students’ abilities—that ability-based decisions often appear logical and natural. However, how schools respond to ability results in very real, lifelong social and economic consequences. Special education and academic streaming (or tracking) are two of the most prominent ability-based strategies public schools use to organize student learning. Both have had a long and complicated relationship with gender, race, and class. In this down-to-earth guide, Dr. Gillian Parekh unpacks the realities of how ability and disability play out within schooling, including insights from students, teachers, and administrators about the barriers faced by students on the basis of ability. From the challenges with ability testing to gifted programs to the disability rights movement, Parekh shows how ableism is inextricably linked to other forms of bias. Her book is a powerful tool for educators committed to justice-seeking practices in schools.
