Based on those studies and direct observations by the author, the fifteen principles outlined in *the accompany manual and vividly demonstrated on the videotape are a guide for parents and teachers who want to promote literacy, and share the pleasure of reading with the deaf and hard of hearing children.

No topic is as frequently debated, or as hotly argued, as that of literacy in deaf children. Many approaches have been tried, and every approach has both its adherents and its success stories, as well as its detractors and its failures. In spite of this attention, the problem of literacy for deaf children has stubbornly refused to go away. In this book, a great deal of information on literacy in general and specifically in regards to deaf children is examined, summarized, and discussed by an educator/researcher in deaf deaf education and an educator/researcher in education. The former is also the parent of two deaf daughters, and a case study of the youngest deaf daughter is included. This case study dramatically illustrates the impact of thoughtful and ongoing application of information gathered from examining research in the educational treatment of a deaf child, who, at age 4, was nonhearing, nonspeaking, and had no spoken, signed, or written language--and who today is an A/B public school sophomore.
Thoughtful consideration of the information in this book should lead educators of deaf youth to formulate, reinforce, or revise their own ideas on how to solve the ongoing problem of literacy, not only for deaf children, but for other children with language-development problems. -- Gerilee Gustason, Ph.D.

After teaching developmental writing to deaf students for may years, Sue Livingston found that students who can read and analyze written texts become better writers. They achieve their improvement by reading, then writing about what they have read. Livingston has embodied her successful approach in Working Text: Teaching Deaf and Second-Language Students to Be Better Writers.
In this straightforward instructional book, Livingston first explains what is involved and why her methods work with deaf students, second-language students, and other students who need to improve their writing ability. Upon this foundation, Working Text delineates how to teach students to write through reading and writing exercises. These exercises have been carefully crafted using the X-Word Grammar approach to help students discover common language constructions that they can apply to their own writing. As the students progress, their understanding of the elements of good writing will grow.
