Teaching tools continue to be discovered in the education field, including Deaf education. Teaching Deaf students can be challenging for teachers who want to be sure deaf students are learning. World Knowledge, applications, and developing appreciation for life long learning are several goals most teachers have for their deaf students. This thesis will focus on an innovative approach to teaching deaf students that incorporates "Drama In Education" in the classroom teaching. A workshop will be developed to prepare teachers of deaf students about Drama in Education, how to put it into practice and how to assess the students' learning from Drama In Education activities. This workshop will include findings from education research articles and published books on how to incorporate Drama in Education along with cooperative learning, learning styles, and applying their experiences world knowledge theories. It is my hope that educators of deaf students will develop increased interest to adopt this kind of approach into their classroom teaching. I strongly feel that this approach is one of the paths to a better education for deaf students.
