Projects and Papers

With about a month to go in the semester we better get going on projects and papers .

Discuss Through Deaf Eyes

Tuesday, November 2nd, 2010

Discuss the video Through Deaf Eyes by adding a comment to this post. Due 9 Nov 2010.

You’ll find lots of good info at the PBS site including a transcript and discussion guide .

To help guide the discussion, consider these questions:

  1. Did your perceptions of deafness change watching this story?
  2. What segments did you like best? Feel free to use the transcript to help you remember them.
  3. Were you surprised that the students took over the school? That they hot wired the buses?

Feel free to include anything else that interested or challenged you.
