Definitely not going to defend myself, it was a dumb thing to do. Although, I did whisper, not shout, an answer just to get my friend on the right track. I totally respect my teacher and it was the kind of whisper that probably would have been tried in any class with a hearing teacher as well. She was a great teacher and I think I learned better that way. There is a mix of deaf and hearing asl teachers at my school, though. It was amazing though, because she didn't respond to phones going off, people sneezing, people walking in late (until she saw them) and even the people bashing asl and deaf people in the hall one day.

Can't most deaf people read lips...?

I'm pretty sure that they can; however, considering the amount of students there might be in the class. The chances of OP being in her field of vision are relatively small.

Even if you are an expert lip reader, you can only understand at most 30% of what someone says through lip reading because some sounds such as 'd and t' and 'p and b' have the exact same mouth movements.

Why are people thumbing #74 down? She's right, although I'm not sure about the percentage. Many words and letters look similar so even if someone is great with lip-reading, they probably won't catch every word perfectly.

Haha good luck OP. I was actually in a similar situation. My high school ASL teacher didn't talk to us for the first semester and right before Christmas break used her voice and we were SHOCKED. We knew she was deaf but some deaf people choose not to speak and we assumed the latter. It was such a mind blowing experience.

#3: Amazingly, deaf professors seem to excel in sign language, so they make the perfect instructor. That being said, the ASL class I attended included an interpreter, as did the other classes. My instructor wasn't deaf, but she was hard of hearing. She was awesome.

I'm currently taking ASL. My professor is 100% Deaf and has been since birth. We had interpreters on the first day, but after that we have managed to communicate. Gesturing, spell signing, writing, all make it possible to communicate without speaking, and make us learn the lanuage much faster due to the near total immersion.

My intro level ASL professor was completely deaf. We learned a lot, and didn't need an interpreter (except one day near the end of our first semester, when students had to do presentations, and he wanted to speed the process along) OP deserves it for trying to take advantage of a situation, and cheating (still cheating if you're the one giving answers) on an exam. And don't worry doc, it just hit 100 down votes, so the FML Gods have granted your wish. :)

My sister is deaf and she is a school counselor with a master's degree - just because someone can't hear doesn't mean they're sentenced to a life of begging on the street!

If she could lie about being deaf then she could pretend to not lf heard you. Cheating is not the best thing you could of done though!

It's pretty common among people who are deaf to be able to read words just from looking at the movement of the lips. My grandma has been able to do it ever since she lost some of her hearing (._.)

Sounds like she was testing you.
