I am a special education high school teacher in New York City. It is very hard for me to compete with TV videos, movies, computers and technology that we all deal with on a daily basis. These items must be implemented into our children's education as much as possible. TV and DVD's are one of the best ways to do so.

NYC's Public Library is extensive and full of amazing videos and DVDs that can reinforce my lessons dramatically. For example, I am teaching my students about WW2 and the effects of the war. I can show clips of Anne Frank's story which is on DVD or clips from PBS videos which are in all NYC libraries. These clips of video footage will bring home my classroom lessons when they open the text book and see the exact footage they watched written in the text book. This double impact of information will help them tremendously.

My biggest struggle is captivating my special education student's attention. Many students in special education are visual and auditory learners. They learn from watching and hearing information. Text book learning for my students are not sufficient to them retaining the information I need them to retain.

The TV will be a great asset to my classroom. I can use this TV to reinforce lessons in History the most. I presently have a vast array of videos and DVDs but no TV to show it on. I strongly believe using both visual, auditory and literacy in the learning process will triple their learning processes.
