Adding Audio-Visual Equipment to Your Homeschool Classroom

There are thousands of DVDs, videotapes, cassettes, and audio CDs available today that you will find valuable additions to your curriculum. These include documentaries on DVD, such as Ken Burns' seminal The Civil War miniseries, to instructional programs to foreign language lessons on CD. To take advantage of all these types of resources, you'll need to equip your schoolroom with the following equipment:

  • Television
  • VCR
  • Cassette deck
  • CD player
  • DVD player
A good way to get the audio-only equipment is to add a boombox to your schoolroom. Of course, you probably already have a television, VCR, and DVD player in your house. You can also use these for school, but it can be more convenient to add inexpensive versions to the schoolroom. For example, you can get a small television with a built-in VCR for relatively little money.
