Deaf Jam and Class Today

Overall I actually really enjoyed watching Deaf Jam, I think it did a really great job of portraying the community at Lexington and showing how many Deaf kids have lives similar to our own and face a lot of the same issues that people do in the hearing world. It was also really nice to see a friendship between someone who is hearing and someone who is Deaf who came together because of the art of Slam poetry.


I would say that for class, I would most be interested in talking about the movie first and then the articles, because I feel there will probably be a lot of strong opinions on that. And to be honest, I am near the end of "Train Go Sorry" but I haven't been able to finish due to time so far but we can still discuss the book as a class if there's time.
