Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course to both Deaf/HOH and hearing students. Especially hearing people because some are not fully aware of the Deaf world. I think it's a great opportunity for them to learn more about the Deaf culture and who they are. Multiculturalism is also about Deaf identity and how they label themselves. It's about them, standing up for their rights in a community where there are lots of discrimination going against them. It's complicated to comprehend, but yet so beautiful, once you wrap your mind around this concept.
I learned that Deaf people can conquer the world. They can make changes, that some hearing people think they can't do. Despite their struggles to hear, they fight back harder and prove to those wrong. Deaf people have obstacles to overcome, when dealing with their identity. They have identity crisis where they don't know what other identification they have, beyond the word, "Deaf." I learned that the word "Deaf," is capitalized 'D.' I found that quite thought-provoking. That word is powerful enough to alert hearing people that Deaf peers have a lot of pride in their identity. It got my cognitive thinking process firing up!! I wanted to learn more and more. I was full of curiosity because it was such an attention-grabbing class to learn from.

Advice for students:
In order to be successful in this class, students should make sure they're listening and jotting down good notes to keep up with discussions. When listening to the teacher, students should be understanding the information. Not just hearing the information and writing it down. If you're confused, talk to the teacher. When a test ever occurs, make sure you take full responsibility. You should study 2-4 hours, then take a break. You should give the mind a break and take a couple of deep breaths.
