Hi-what a thoughtful question.
The answer does depend on the age of the class. I am going to guess elementary, helping to define hearing loss for themselves. Earmuffs, etc. Or a movie with no sound; so they "know' what it is like not to hear. Read short biographies of people with hearing loss who have excelled in their own way; the class could study sign language and "reading lips"; more.. Luck.

In brief: Signing classes
Lots of visual signage and information to read, visually stimulating environment, and the idea of teachers , assistants and even other children having the option of learning to sign - and even involving the deaf children in the teaching / learning process- i thing would be very helpful.
