Learning To Read from Television: The Effects of Using Captions and Narration.
Linebarger, Deborah L.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v93 n2 p288-98 Jun 2001
Investigated caption use, sound, and reading behavior of 76 children who had just completed 2nd grade. The present study indicated that beginning readers recognize more words when they view television that uses captions. Captions, by evoking efforts to read, appeared to help a child focus on central story elements and away from distracting information. (BF)
