Abstract

Using the Bilingual Method for teaching English as a second language to learners in K-12 Deaf Residential Schools is valuable for developing literacy in both reading and writing skills. The benefits of using the bilingual method in the classroom, is to provide D/deaf learners with a holistic approach to learning. Learners are exposed to cultural issues and become respected members of both the hearing and Deaf populations. Learners also have a positive view of both ASL and English as equal languages. The skills and abilities that develop from a bilingual education result in opportunities for personal, social, and economic growth.
