FINAL PROJECT: Deaf Awareness Resource



As a teacher of the deaf, it is quite likely you will have peers that will not have a background in what it means to be D/deaf, nor an understanding of the policies and trends affecting K-12 students who are deaf/hard of hearing. As the classroom teacher or the campus expert, you may be called upon to train the paraprofessional or new adult working with your deaf/hard of hearing students. This project requires that you create a digital resource for such an individual that includes elements of history, policies and trends that would be needed for the person to have a well-rounded understanding of what it means to be D/deaf or hard of hearing.
