Developing Understandings of Deaf Students’ Learning in Mainstream Secondary Classrooms: Teaching Assistants’ Perspectives
This study investigates teaching assistants’ (TA) perspectives of deaf students’ learning experiences within mainstream secondary schools. The majority of deaf students are educated within such settings and they underachieve in all curriculum areas when compared with their hearing peers. The investigation adopts a holistic perspective of learning originally developed in the field of adult education.
