AN INVESTIGATION OF THE WRITING PROCESSSES OF STUDENTS WITH HEARING LOSS: IMPLICATIONS FOR TEACHING OF WRITING

Ghulam HAIDER

Abstract


This study explores the writing processes of students with hearing impairment. Students were given an expository essay for writing. The students produced two data sets: first was obtained at entrance test and second on the completion of the course. All data sets were scored with the help of a scoring guide that was provided by the English department of Govt. Training College for Teaches of the Deaf. Findings have revealed that although the students texts had very clear errors of language and vocabulary, they improved the organization and content of their texts. This presentation reviews literature on deaf adolescents’ writing before exploring the structural gains the students in this study demonstrated.  Sample papers and their rating scores will be used.

Keywords: writing processes, organization, content, hearing impaired students
