VCR/TV for Learning Disabled Students

A Panasonic 27" TV with VCR, purchased from Best Buy, costs [price], including shipping and [fulfillment].

I teach 18 learning Disabled students in a Resource Room setting. I am teaching the remediation of reading, writing, and math skills. Our school is located in the South Bronx at 1010 Reverand James A. Polite Ave, Bronx 10459. The students are all African American and Latino. All of our students receive free lunch. I would like to be able to use a VCR & T.V. in the resource room with my students. There are many resources available on tapes that are specific to special education that my students would benefit from if we had this equipment. We are currently reading "Freak The Mighty" and there is a film version out that I would like them to see. During and after reading novels like "Freak The Mighty" and "The Giver", students will complete video logs, in which they document character development. Then they will debate themes like loyalty, responsibility, and whether or not juveniles should be treated as adults for crimes. One of the themes agreed apon will be recorded and presented to a panel of judges. There are also many programs on National Geographic and the Discovery Channel that my students could benefit from.
