Using Captioned TV for Teaching Reading. FASTBACK 359.
Goldman, Milton E.
Suggesting that captioned television is a powerful motivator for teaching reading comprehension, this fastback offers a procedure for teaching with captioned television, including taping captioned programs off the air. The fastback notes that captioned television is useful in intermediate and advanced English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) programs, students in grades 5 to 12 and adults whose reading comprehension levels are significantly below expectations for their grade or age, and remedial programs, special education, reading, or English programs for students whose tested comprehension is between fourth- and eighth-grade reading levels. The fastback provides suggestions for choosing appropriate programs and explanations of copyright and off-air recording regulations. The fastback also provides two sample lesson plans for ESL students and advice for using captioned television in the content areas. A sample captioned television study guide is attached. (RS)
