2 Points to Ponder…. 1.How far/close do Deaf/hearing people stand when they talk to each other? 2. Is their eye gaze continuous or broken up?

5 Now, let’s make some lists… What are the of behaviors that would be considered “hearing culture”. Ex: yelling to get attention.

6 What are the behaviors that would be considered unique to Deaf people. Ex: using sign language
