dc.description.abstract This study examined the use of sign movies, content movies, and adjunct questions in an instructional unit for Deaf students taking an environmental science course. Pre and post tests of factual recall as well as an attitude measure were administered to detennine if web-based technology benefits Deaf students taking environmental science courses. The results indicate that deaf students learning through web-based technology benefit from embedded American Sign Language explanations and questions as adjunct instructional aids. Implications of using webbased technology are discussed for science teachers having deaf students in their classes. en_US
