D. DE OLIVEIRA, Walquíria; C. DE MELO, Ariane Carla  and  CANAVARRO BENITE, Anna M.. Science education for deaf children: a study about the narratives production in regular classes inclusive. Rev. electrón. investig. educ. cienc. [online]. 2012, vol.7, n.1, pp.1-9. ISSN 1850-6666.

The education of deaf people in regular schools is a challenge because for a long time not given due importance to their way of communication, sign language. With the inclusion of the deaf students have been put into the regular school and there is a need for a new agent on vital for their integration, the interpreter of Brazilian sign language (libras). The aim of this study is to analyze the narratives production by libras interpreters and science teachers in the inclusive classroom. The investigation of this issue brings the discussion questions as: what is the role of the educational interpreter? What is prescribed and what is real in the process of inclusion? The methodological approach adopted is based on Zabalza that uses the class diaries as research instruments, where the subject is searched without being noticed. The results point to a lack of knowledge of language constituted the main dilemma in the education of the deaf.
