Seeing Through New Eyes: Deaf Culture and Deaf Pedagogies - The Unrecognized Curriculum

*FOR HELP WITH INTERNATIONAL ORDERS, PLEASE EMAIL CONTACTUS@DAWNSIGN.COM*

Deaf educators have largely been excluded from Deaf education, at great cost to Deaf people. For the first time in 260 years, an entire book recognizes the contributions of these educators.

This ground-breaking first volume in a planned series looks at the “unrecognized curriculum” offered over the years by Deaf educators who knew “the Deaf way.”

Revealing six levels of Deaf student development, the book covers early language acquisition through Deaf students learning how to live well in the world.

Pedagogies, or teaching methods, may be “universal” across the globe, even though Deaf communities and education systems have evolved separately from each other.

An engrossing book, The Unrecognized Curriculum challenges the status quo and dreams of Deaf education that is Deaf-centered and Deaf-led.

A must-read for anyone involved in Deaf education, parents of a Deaf child, Deaf adults who survived a broken education system, or those interested in signed languages and cultures.
