MUST HAVE QUOTES FROM TEXTBOOK: Holcomb, T. (2013). Introduction to American Deaf Culture. Oxford University Press.
***3-4 paragraph requirement
There is as much diversity in the Deaf community as in the hearing community. What are some reasons why sharing a common trait like deafness might not necessarily unite all of the community. Also, interpreters may not be accepted easily in the Deaf community. Why is it important for an interpreter to familiarize themselves with the different cultures they are going to be interpreting for? What is the importance/ significance organizations play in the lives of Deaf individuals and the Deaf community as a whole? What are the ways in which the Deaf community can benefit from having such organizations? Do you think they make the Deaf community stronger? Select one of the four types of organizations and describe how deaf individuals can benefit from joining or participating in that organization. Have you personally benefited from joining a similar organization (i.e. Sports team, club, professional organization etc.)? Is there a potential for these organizations to isolate the deaf community or be harmful in any way?
