Summer break is almost here!  While you’re winding down, why not get a head start on the fall semester? National Deaf Center (NDC) offers FREE resources to help your students develop crucial self-advocacy and career readiness skills. These resources include curriculum-ready strategy guides for both teachers and students, making lesson planning a breeze! What better way to return to the classroom refreshed and prepared?

Game On, Career Ready! Deafverse Equips Deaf Teens with Tools for Success

Get ready to take your students on an epic Choose-Your-Own adventure with Deafverse, the first-ever online game built with American Sign Language (ASL) accessibility in mind for deaf teens. Imagine a world where they can choose their own path, conquer challenges, and master essential skills needed to thrive in the real world. Here’s the coolest part: Deafverse isn’t just about fun (although it’s definitely that too!). It’s also designed to equip students with the career readiness skills they’ll need to crush summer or fall jobs and internships.

In “Revenge of the Deep” students can choose their dream job, identify their strengths, and translate them into a winning resume. The game helps them practice communication strategies that will make them shine in interviews. But the real power lies in teaching them to confidently advocate for their needs in the workplace by developing their job readiness skills.

Do your Deaf students have summer jobs or fall internships lined up? Equip them with the tools to succeed! Send them these videos and visit our resources page for more Deafverse takeaways. 

Power Up Your Classroom

Even if you’ve played Deafverse before, we’ve added a bunch of new features to make the game better for both teachers and players! Teachers now have a special account type that enables themselves to manage their classes with student account set-up and game progress tracking! Not only that, but everyone else can also enjoy the overall improvements to the game. Players and teachers can also access key learning modules directly from our website, including clips from the game without needing an account! Check out this sample from Revenge of the Deep on disclosure in the workplace.
