Reading challenges

Marc Marschark is the lead author on a research paper presented in the latest issue of American Annals of the Deaf, vol.154, no.4, 2009.  Are deaf students’ reading challenges really about reading? The article posits “…that deaf students face many of the same challenges in comprehending sign language as they do in comprehending text suggest that difficulties frequently observed in their learning from text may involve more than just reading.” (From the abstract, p. 357.)  Researching college students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, the authors found that students understand less of a signed lecture than they think they do.
