The Individualized Induction Plan
The Level II Program is a two year program designed to induct new teachers into the teaching profession. Upon beginning your Level II Program, you will develop an Individualized Induction Plan (IIP) with one of the faculty advisors in DHH. The IIP is developed in accordance with The California Commision on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC) standards for the Level II in Deaf/Hard of Hearing.
Those standards are:
Standard 13: Advancement of Personal Communication Skills
Each Level II candidate demonstrates advanced personal communication skills which are necessary to effectively interact with the deaf and hard-of-hearing students with whom they work. Each candidate demonstrates an advanced level of communication skills, compared with that required in Level I.
Standard 14: Special Populations within the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Community
Each Level II candidate demonstrates advanced knowledge and skills related to effective assessment and instruction of deaf and hard-of-hearing students with special needs.
Standard 15: Early Childhood Intervention and Education
Each Level II candidate demonstrates knowledge of and ability to assess deaf and hard-of-hearing infants and to plan, coordinate, collaborate, and/or implement an appropriate program for infants and their families.
Standard 16: Involvement with the Deaf Community
Each Level II candidate utilizes interaction opportunities with deaf and hard-of-hearing adults.
