It All Depends is a text supplement for use in foundations and
methods courses. It can be useful
in helping preservice teachers
make important connections
between knowledge and application of educational concepts
and principles. Discussing cases
and solutions to real problems
encountered by teachers places preservice teachers in an
authentic teacher role: continuously reflecting on pedagogical
decisions to enhance student
achievement. Not only are they
expected to state what they
would do but also why.
This casebook consists of five
- Communication Issues
- Literacy Instruction
- Learner Differences
chapter has three case studies
which reflect issues involved in
teaching students who are deaf.
The cases represent situations
relevant to prospective teachers
in grades K-12. The specific
scenarios are drawn from direct
experiences as a classroom
teacher, observations of inservice
teachers (as a consultant and
curriculum specialist), and observations of preservice teachers (as
a teacher educator).
Each case contains a scenario,
reflection questions and extension activities.
