Teaching resources on the human ear, deafness and deaf awareness

Are you looking for resources to help you teach (or learn) about the human ear, its structure and function, causes of deafness and deaf awareness? If so, you've come to the right place!

We are pleased to share this set of new teaching resources that are aimed at students in Year 9 and fit within the Science curriculum. They could potentially also be used for any group throughout KS3 and KS4, probably as part of a PSHE curriculum.

This pack of resources is designed to help support the teaching of Deaf Awareness to secondary age children.  Lessons can be altered to suit either timetabled PSHE lessons or to fit shorter tutor-based sessions. We have included some guidance on how the resources could be used but the resources have been designed to be flexible and used as teachers see fit.

The two lessons cover the human ear, its structure and the function of each part (in Lesson 1); and causes of deafness and deaf awareness (in Lesson 2).

These resources were developed by Michelle and Jeremy Rayne - whose children (shown in the first photo) have recently attended our preschool services. Jeremy is a teacher, and has piloted these resources in Year 9 lessons.

If you find these materials useful and would be interested in finding out more about how you can support our work, you can take a look at our fundraising pages or get in touch with us
