"Switched at Birth" Season 3 Episode 8 "Dance Me to the Edge of Love" Discussion Questions

Who it’s for: American Sign Language (ASL) instructors/educators
What’s included: Discussion questions based on the episode. Formats offered doc and PDF – same questions on either file.
Why it’s useful: For those educators who desire to use a movie or television show/episode but struggle with making the showing relevant, here are some discussion questions to lead students in thinking through what was viewed. Educators can use these questions as either in-class discussions or hand to students for in-class work or even as homework. Might be a good snow-day assignment, if the instructor is certain students have access to the episode (most notably available - as of 2019 - on Netflix).
Learning Objectives: In this multi-layered discussion question worksheet, students will examine their own understanding, perception, and beliefs regarding d/Deaf and their abilities to participate in “the hearing world”. Students will have an opportunity to answer questions with their opinions, then watch the episode and respond to the same beginning questions with a possibly altered opinion/view. Following this, and before submitting, students will research into the world addressed by the episode - Deaf becoming doctors and Deaf dancing. Once the research is completed, students will again be asked a series of questions to guide their understanding of their beliefs, the episode, and the research.
