A Manual for Closed Captioned Television in ESOL Instruction. Elementary and Secondary K-12 English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL).
Closed-captioned videotapes and accompanying print materials are available to the Prince George's County Public Schools English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) program to help students develop their sight and meaning vocabulary, oral reading fluency, prediction skills, and ability to locate information in written texts. This manual is intended to familiarize ESL teachers with the materials. The main part of the report, an inventory of the nine available captioned videotapes, is preceded by general guidelines for selecting videotape segments and planning lessons. Suggestions for specific classroom activities, divided according to skill emphasis, follow the inventory. The appendices include the following: (1) lists of vocabulary items taken from four of the tapes; (2) sample grammatical features and exercises from one of the tapes; (3) information on equipment features and operations; and (4) a listing of closed-captioned television programs that are currently being broadcast. A form for the evaluation of this curriculum guide follows the appendices. (LB)
