Suggested Discussion Board Activities and Assignments

Assignment: Tactile Memory Simulation

Discussion Board Questions - Simulation Review:

  • What do you think left the strongest trace (impression) on your partner?
  • What did your partner tell you left the strongest impression on her?
  • If your responses were different, why do you think they were different?


Experiences leave traces in our memories of emotional feelings and bodily perceptions and actions. People with sight and hearing need to affirm and share the (tactile) experiences of students with deaf-blindness in order to build similar memory traces as their students.
