Ross, Annemarie D.; Edenzon, Kyle; Pagano, Susan Smith; Yerrick, Randy; Pagano, Todd – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2019
Curricula related to sustainability and climate science are being integrated into academic science courses and programs. We set out to assess the knowledge of some of these environmental concepts among a group of Deaf/Hard-of-Hearing (D/d/HH) postsecondary students. A survey that attempted to gauge student understanding and perceptions of climate…

Gehret, Austin U.; Trussell, Jessica W.; Michel, Lea V. – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2017
An undergraduate research experience can provide a unique opportunity for students to learn and grow as scientists; when positive, this experience is often transformative and motivates students to pursue science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) graduate degrees or careers. Conversely, negative research experiences can sour a…

Gormally, Cara L.; Marchut, Amber – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2017
Students who are deaf and hard-of-hearing are underrepresented in science majors, yet we know little about why. Students from other underrepresented groups in science--women and people of color--tend to highly value altruistic or communal career goals, while perceiving science as uncommunal. Research suggests that holding stereotypical conceptions…

Kahn, Sami; Feldman, Allan; Cooke, Michele L. – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2013
Deaf and hard of hearing (DHH) persons are underrepresented in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). One of the major barriers to STEM careers is DHH students' extremely low college graduation rates. While social and literacy barriers play a critical role in this phenomenon, student autonomy has also been cited as…

Pagano, Todd – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2013
At the risk of opening with a cliché statement- at the heart of the most effective mentor is a burning passion. The fuel for this passion is a desire to convince, not just try to, but actually convince your mentee that you care about their success (be it in the classroom, career, or personal life). I am guilty of believing in, and living by, this…

Ross, Annemarie D.; Pagano, Todd – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2009
There is often a particular void in the education of deaf and hard-of-hearing students who intend to become competent working laboratory technicians. Inasmuch as certain basic professional skills ("soft skills," in this case) are not generally taught in traditional science courses, a new curriculum has been developed in order to enforce…

Pagano, Todd; Quinsland, L. K. – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2007
For deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals, the emergence of Instant Messaging technology and digital pagers has been perhaps one of the greatest liberating communication technological breakthroughs since the advent of the TTY. Instant Messaging has evolved into an everyday socially compelling, portable, and "real time" communication mode…
