Captions can provide struggling readers with additional print exposure, improving foundational reading skills. In a typical classroom, a teacher may find many students who are struggling readers, whether they are beginning readers, students with language-based learning disabilities, or English language learners (ELLs). One motivating, engaging, and inexpensive way to help build the foundational reading skills of students is through the use of closed-captioned and subtitled television shows and movies. View this short video for an overview of how you can use captions with your students.
