- American Sign Language - 1,671 words
American Sign Language In learning about the deaf culture I have taken on a new understanding about the people it includes. Through readings and the lessons, I have learned that being deaf has both its hardships and its blessings. The beauty of the language alone makes one want to learn all that he or she can about it. In this paper I will discuss the beauty of the language and the misconceptions the hearing world has about deafness. The deaf culture has often been labeled as the deaf- and- dumb culture. This is not only an insulting term it is also very inaccurate. Deaf people are just as intelligent as hearing people. In the early 1800's when ASL was first brought about in the United State ...

- Deaf Culture And Alcoholism - 858 words
Deaf Culture And Alcoholism Deaf Culture and Alcoholism Abstract Why is it so hard for the deaf to deal with admitting they are alcoholics or drug addicts which is an impediment for recovery? Why is it so hard for them to stay sober once they have achieved it for a few weeks or months? What do you think the main reasons are? Having worked with the deaf for over 30 years I will try to answer these questions and research other aspects of the deaf culture, their mode of communication and alcoholism. Although it may seem that communication is an aspect of every culture, two of the unique features are that there is not always a common language between parents and child, and there is no written fo ...

- Deaf President Now - 292 words
Deaf President Now ASL 1 4 October 2000 Deaf President Now Protest #2 First of allI had no clue of how large of an issue The Deaf President Now Protest was. It surprised me that it had not been talked about in my past history classes. The Deaf President Now Protest was so symbolic to that of the Womans Rights Movement and Civil Rights Movement. It might have been a smaller issue due to the fact that the Deaf Community is smallerhowever, the protest was just as big. It really upsets me that I didnt learn about this until I took an ASL course. While reading this article, there were many statements that struck me in a negative manner. It irritated me that Gallaudet treated the students unfairly ...

- Employment - 1,160 words
Employment What is the purpose of a career? A career provides a framework for life development; a sort of independence one can have in his or her life. Employment provides a person with the opportunity for social interaction and a salary with which to provide the resources needed to survive. Finding a job in America is not an easy task to say the least. So what are the odds of a hearing impaired person finding a job that is both of interest and ability level? If one is deaf the chances of finding a job are less than optimal. One that is deaf or hard of hearing must overcome prejudices and gain acceptance in order to become successful at their chosen career. Studies have shown that a majority ...

- History Of Communication - 1,265 words
History Of Communication [an error occurred while processing this directive] History Of Communication Since the beginning of time, people have had the need to communicate with one and other. The most common type of communication is speech, but you could not talk to someone who lived 20 miles away. Then written language was developed, people marked symbols on paper, stone, or whatever was available. Then hundreds of years passed, and people who wanted to share their ideas with people had to do allot of writing, until someone thought to make a writing machine. This machine is called the printing press. Gutenberg's invention of the printing press is widely thought of as the origin of mass commu ...

- Lab Report: Beginning Asl 3 4 - 711 words
Lab Report: Beginning ASL 3 & 4 Sign language is a method of communication of which I am becoming more and more familiar. This is in great part to a series of videos I am currently watching entitled The Bravo Family, Beginning ASL 1-15. I have recently finished watching videos three and four. I have discovered there are many things that I did not know concerning such topics as the culture and grammar of the deaf community. I feel these are two aspects which deserve an abundance of credit and require a large amount of studying. The culture of the deaf community is still thriving and continues to grow in strength. This in spite of the years of suppression that people have enforced on these uni ...

- Silence - 875 words
Silence Imagine what it would be like not being able to hear what is going on around you. Most of the people, in this world live in a world of sounds, and these people often take them for granted. Nevertheless, we completely depend on sounds to get through our everyday lives.
