Unit 2: American Deaf History and Culture

Now that you’ve studied the topics in Unit 2, you should be able to answer the following questions fairly easily.

• What role do residential schools play in the Deaf community?

• Who are some noted deaf people in history, and what did they accomplish?

• How do cultural differences impact the interactions that interpreters have with users of their services?

• What is the interpreter’s social role in Deaf society?

If you can answer these questions comfortably, it’s time to take the Unit 2 quiz.
