This unit was designed with students' individual needs in mind.
By combining different forms of media for students to utilize on a daily basis as a learning tool, they
will develop into well-rounded people who are capable of fulfilling a responsible, independent, and
active role in society. Covering all possible areas of development including intellectual,
social, practical, emotional, moral, and psychological, students will be learning
far beyond the subject matter being taught.
