Abstract

Captioned Entertainment Films' movie classics are being used to provide more than passive entertainment for deaf children. When used as a teaching tool, in conjunction with a language arts curriculum, Captioned Entertainment Films serve as a valuable support for the teaching of reading, language, and composition.

Captioned Entertainment Films provide students and teachers with a concrete, common, visual frame of reference from which to practice language arts skills. This shared experience enables teachers to be more efficient and expeditious in helping students organize their thoughts. Captioned Entertainment Films provide students with the opportunity to improve skills in reading, language, and composition and to taste some of Hollywood's great literary classics.
