A LaGuardia Community College course in developmental writing for deaf students features small class size and teachers fluent in American Sign Language. Teaching practices include reading of model essays on topics of interest to deaf students, peer feedback on the first two drafts of writing assignments, and student "reading aloud" of essays in English-like sign language.


This is the accepted manuscript of the article published as "Promising Practice: Teaching Developmental Writing to Postsecondary Students Who Are Deaf" in Journal of Postsecondary Education and Disability, vol. 12, no. 2, Fall 1996, pp. 43-44.
