In the 250 years of Deaf educational systems not a single book has been written about Deaf teachers and their pedagogical practices - a telling illustration of the extent to which the education of Deaf children has been appropriated by hearing people. Since the turn of the century several important articles and dissertations have begun to explore some of these practices, and this paper focuses on a research study of a number of Deaf educators in the UK and the USA, setting out a framework within which their Deaf pedagogical practices can be mapped. Comparison with studies in a number of other countries reveals that many of these practices are remarkably similar, enabling us to posit the existence of global Deafhood pedagogical principles.
