Effects of hearing impairment – self tests (teacher instructions)
In self-testing, students should experience how everyday life is affected by impairment of a sense organ.
One third of the class is given earplugs to put in both ears; another third gets just one earplug. The other students retain their full hearing ability. The earplugs are removed for the class discussion and then the three groups switch roles so that in the end each student has taken on each role.
