ABSTRACT

This study is derived from thought of applying the general school curriculum to the deaf student is causing serious problems to the education in not only special schools but also the entire education for deaf students. The purpose of this study is to investigate the characteristics of curriculums in 2008 and 2010 for students with hearing impairment, and to suggest reasonable alternatives. Following the curriculum for regular schools, which does not consider the nature of students with hearing impairment, causes problems in deaf schools as they ignore the general curriculum and organize their own programs in classes. Furthermore, applying the regular school curriculum to students with hearing impairment is making them difficult to find their identity for their growth and development even though it is the main reason to set an educational curriculum. Therefore, it is required to reflect elements of deaf studies to the curriculum as well as sign language. In order to find alternatives for the deaf students, regular school curriculum from 2008 and 2010 has been analyzed and investigated to be suitable for the deaf students.
