Gallaudet: Department of Education

Gallaudet: Department of Education "Education is not filling a bucket, but lighting a fire." -William Yeats
(13)

Undergraduate Programs: The Department of Education offers seven undergraduate teacher preparation programs: early childhood education (ECE), elementary education, secondary Biology education, secondary English education, secondary mathematics education, secondary social studies education, and K-12 physical education. Each of these programs lead to recommendation for licensure in the District of Columbia, with interstate reciprocity in a number of states. Licensure in general education (i.e., ECE, Elementary, and Secondary Education) is required by many programs prior to study at the graduate level in fields such as education of deaf students and other areas of special education. Students who graduate from an Undergraduate Education program who are interested in licensure in Deaf Education may be eligible for the Masters of Arts in Deaf Education. This program requires one year and one summer of courses, and an on-the-job internship. Graduate Programs The department today offers graduate and postgraduate programs to prepare professional personnel to work with all ages of deaf and hard of hearing children in various kinds of educational programs and settings. Programs are designed to meet students' individual needs and interests and are open to hearing, deaf, and hard of hearing individuals. Both coursework and practicum experiences are important preparation components. All programs involve exposure to professional organizations, agencies, and educational facilities related to the education of deaf and hard of hearing students, and provide for involvement in schools and classes. The department strongly recommends that students have both a car and a computer in order to benefit fully from course work and field experiences. Certificate Programs There are two certificate programs. The Certificate in Education of Disabled Children is an online certificate program. The Certificate in Bilingual Education is a hybrid, with the majority of classes being offered online, and two weeks during the summer are required on campus.

Mission: The Department of Education established in 1891, is an ASL/English bilingual, diverse, multicultural learning community devoted to preparing teachers and teacher educators as reflective change agents promoting the intellectual, linguistic, and social potential of deaf and hard-of-hearing children and youth. In compliance with program accreditation, licensure and certification requirements, and state and federal mandates for high quality teacher preparation and the dissemination of research-based educational practices, the mission of the Gallaudet University Department of Education is to nurture and mentor pre- and in-service teachers, teacher educators, clinical supervisors, educational leaders, and classroom-based agents for change. Toward this end, roles and responsibilities of Department faculty members include: (1) the art and craft of teaching, including the modeling of educational content, strategies, and performance assessment, student advisement, and curriculum building and revision; (2) research and the dissemination of knowledge through publication, and other creative endeavors; and (3) a commitment to service through a variety of activities at local, national and international levels.

A wonderful resource in ASL for teachers and families to engage in dialogue of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s legacy.

Today we honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s life and his legacy of struggle for civil and human rights. The march continues.

We invite you to ponder this excerpt taken from “The American Dream,” a commencement address that Dr. King gave at Lincoln University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on June 6, 1961.

We are excited that so many people are interested in the new Deaf Education Studies program. We assumed you all knew we have programs that lead to teaching credentials, but we were wrong! Here's a quick video that explains our graduate program options, including both license and non-license options.

We recognize the captions are a bit speedy. We were planning to polish up the video and share it in January, but it seems people would like this information before then. So we are sharing it as imperfect as it is. We put a transcript in the comments so you can also have the information in a written form.

As always, please email [email protected] or [email protected] for more specific information.

We're so proud of our student, Hannah!!!!

"Senior Hannah Neild is the epitome of a student-athlete. Hannah, an Honors elementary education major from Litchfield, New Hampshire, has maintained a 3.98 grade point average (GPA) while playing basketball, softball, and soccer. This year, she has been named to the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-America teams in all three sports.

Please.... I need your help. How i can get link of Journal Deaf Studies?
Hi EDU Department Community! Request for help with planning for my 3-5 class: I've been reading about embedded trial instruction and constant time delay for working with students with intellectual disabilities (2 of the 4 students in my classroom are deaf plus with cognitive disabilities). I think I understand the concepts now, but do any of you have experience using these strategies in a inclusive setting? I want to try to increase the efficacy of my teaching when we're whole group and working across different levels (K to 3rd for most academic areas), but I'm not sure how to implement these ideas smoothly. Any anecdotes or examples would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
Hello! Please share this information with your community! Thanks. We need help! Our online fundraiser 'Computer room for deaf children' These children are special, being not able to hear, they have great difficulty understanding the school subjects; the things healthy children apprehend with ease, they manage to understand only with help of special training and great effort of will. For deaf children, computer is not only a learning device, but also a tool of communication, socialization, a kind of a guide to the world of hearing people. In our country (Kazakhstan), deaf people have difficulties with employment. Mainly they have to do manual labor for low pay. But if at school they manage to master the computer, in future they would be able to become web designers or system administrators, despite the hearing impairment. When teaching children with hearing impairment, it is important to preserve their vision, as without possibility to hear, they acquire information only through their eyes. This requires modern vision-safe monitors. If a child’s hearing is partially impaired, it is necessary to use high-quality devices for sound enhancement in order to develop rudimentary auditory sense. Unfortunately, our school does not have high-quality computer equipment that can ensure comprehensive and health saving teaching of deaf children. Our school has no funds to buy such equipment. But we hope that together we can provide a future worth living for the hearing-impaired children. help us on generosity: https://www.generosity.com/education-fundraising/computer-room-for-deaf-children--2 Our school is located in the city of Petropavlovsk (Kazakhstan). There are 152 deaf children attending school. 86 children should be engaged on a daily basis on computers (computer science lessons and special simulators for the deaf), the rest 66 - once a week. Many students want to learn programming and processing computer graphics, but this lacks modern computers. In addition to deafness, many children have other diseases: infantile cerebral palsy, mental retardation, poor vision, diseases of the musculoskeletal system. If you can not help us financially, we ask that you distribute this information to other people or charitable organizations. Thank you. There are a few ways to help: 1. Donate - Everything helps. Even small donations have a big impact. 2. Post to Facebook - The more people who hear about us, the more likely we are to meet our target. 3. Share with your community - Call your friends, tell your co-workers, make an announcement at your organization's event to spread the word. #deaf #disability #specialeducation #specialneeds
