I enjoyed this lesson! I think it is important for students to understand the issues surrounding CIs and the Deaf culture. The controversy is something that students wouldn't even know about unless they were taught about it. Maybe you could add a video of members of the Deaf community explaining their viewpoints on the issue? It could give the lesson a little more depth and make it more personal.
