This is a great video to show first year students and expose them to all of the things Deaf can do. I use this as one of my introductory lessons to begin the process of changing thier thinking. I begin with asking students to list all of the things deaf people can’t do or experience and report back to the class. Next I show the video and after the video I ask them to share with me all of the things deaf people can do and experience. I also ask them to share thier feedbac on the video. At the closing, I ask students to leave their hearing mentality at the door and focus on what the deaf community and thier language can do as this is the way they will be successful in class (in the deaf world).
