No Limits: Practical Guide for Teaching
Deaf and Hard of Hearing Students
Ideal for foundation courses, No Limits provides clear, concise and up to date information on maximizing student learning, planning and evaluating learning experiences, accommodating special populations, and getting started as a teacher of the deaf/hard of hearing.
It is such an excellent resource, and honestly, my course is designed around several key concepts it presents. I explored other texts earlier this year but couldn’t find one that matched up to the course objectives quite as well as this one does.
Features of the text include alignment with CEC-CED Professional Standards, quotations, chapter objectives, summaries, activities, many concrete examples, over 50 images, key terms, glossary, internet resources, and references
In order to become successful adults, students who are deaf and hard of hearing must be educated in K–12 school settings in which teachers use instructional approaches that promote learning. This book provides a comprehensive overview of specific educational strategies, techniques, and practices teachers can use in their efforts to enhance learning for students who are deaf and hard of hearing. These methodologies are drawn from several disciplines: deaf education, special education general education, and bilingual education. The book not only explains teaching practices, but also explains how to implement them by providing extensive examples and illustrations. The information is intended to expand the readers’ repertoire of educational options, enabling them to make prudent, effective choices as they plan, implement, and evaluate instruction for the students with hearing loss whose learning is in their hands.
