This is a really wonderful lesson! This is a science unit I created for my masters program that incorporates science, technology, cultural diversity and essay writing. Students watch the documentary Sound and Fury about an extended family on Long Island with several deaf family members and the controversy over wether or not to give two children cochlear implants to help them hear. The movie can be rented on iTunes or I think can be requested for free though the PBS website.
