There are four basic types of classroom (Stewart & Kluwin, 2001) that deaf education teachers can be placed in. The most pictured classroom is the traditional classroom where a teacher has a group of all deaf and hard of hearing students, usually only about five to eight children with a range of learning levels. This teacher must be prepared to be teaching on different grade levels within one class. Others types of classrooms are a resource room where there is more of a one-on-one focus, itinerant teachers who travel between schools and students, spending only a select amount of time with them. The last typical type of class is a team teaching situation where there are both hearing and deaf students in a classroom and another teacher that focuses on the hearing ... ... middle of paper ... ... a resource library for any questions concerning deaf education.
History unfolds the advantages of residential schools for students who are deaf and hard of hearing (DHH). While some DHH students are placed in other educational settings depending on their circumstances, majority of those who have experienced residential schools cannot help but express how glad they are of the experience. Because of the low incidence of deafness, we seldom see residential schools for DHH students. Texas has one residential school for the deaf that services the whole state, the Texas School for the Deaf (TSD) located in Austin. Discussed below is the role that residential schools play in the following aspects of deaf individuals: education, lives, culture, communication, and development.
Beyond English Development: Bilingual Approaches to Teaching Immigrant Students and English Language Learners What a feeling! Learning a new language gives individuals a new way of thinking and feeling. Learning a new kind of language involves having total commitment and total involvement from students and teachers.

Also, young Deaf students should be taught by Deaf teachers because Deaf/C.O.D.A are good language models. Language models are important to have because who else would be a good model for ASL?

Phillip doesn't remember much of his elementary school experience, but for the most part, his language was very poor, from a developmental perspective, and he was kept in classes where there were only deaf students present. He refers to his elementary school experience as "positive," but isn't really sure whether it was just the fun and excitement of his youth which overwhelmed the barriers that he would later experience in his life. Phillip's true experience with discrimination in the school setting began when he entered junior high, where he was mainstreamed, and took subjects among all of his peers, whether they were hearing or not. In high school Phillip was partially mainstreamed. He took English and other required courses with his deaf peers, but for his electives and physical education, he was put in classes where the majority of the population was hearing.
According to Scheetz (2012), DHH students who are children of deaf parents and have a deaf sibling adopt the culturally Deaf identity, those who were born into a family who stress oralism develop the culturally hearing identity, and those who are children of a hearing family adopt the bicultural identity. DHH students who have developed the culturally Deaf identity rely primarily on the manual mode of communication, but they have rich knowledge of Deaf culture, traditions, and values because they, together with their family, live by these culture, traditions, and values. These students usually go to special schools for the deaf and may benefit more from the American Sign Language (ASL) or other manual system. One issue here is that, because of DHH students’ tendency to be exclusively exposed to the Deaf culture and community, they may end up having
Currently one billion people in the world have some type of disability, according to World Report on Disability. The question is, should these people that have a disability be allowed to sit in a regular classroom with the “normal” children or children with average learning abilities? I think that this question should be asked individually instead of having a generalized answer of yes or no. A person should or should not be allowed in a regular classroom based off of three things: how disable the person is, will it be fair to the other people that will be in the classroom if that said child attends the class, and also is that person with a disability being taught. It is important to know how disable the individual is so that it can be determined

The Redeafined magazine has an information about which is best in between with the institute for the Deaf or mainstream in a hearing school. The mainstream have “curriculum and teaching styles standardized across classrooms” and “signing students communicate through interpreters”. This can be for only few deaf and not many. “May have individual speed therapy”, and this school “will have more practice listening and speaking to communicate during the school day”. “Deafness likely viewed as a disability or medical problem”.
In the United States every student have access to education, no matter their language, race, ethnic, etc. Unfortunately not all the children can enjoy this opportunity because they do not speak the common language, in this case English. Many school offer bilingual education programs but there still school across the nation that have not offer bilingual education. The main goal of all this programs is the student became biliterate in their native language and the second language acquired. The most effective way to develop literacy is in child’s native language.
