SPOTLIGHT! On Using Captioned Media to Improve Literacy

Described and Captioned Media Program’s (DCMP) Read Captions Across America (RCAA) is the first national reading event to put emphasis on the importance of captioned media as a reading tool for all children, not just those who are deaf or hard of hearing. Thousands of students have participated in this event since its inauguration in 2006. Teachers can order a free RCAA kit, learn more about how captioning improves literacy, and find great ideas from teachers and parents on the RCAA website.

Educators can also use these captioned media resources from DCMP to celebrate Black History Month (February) and Presidents Day (February 18)—and throughout the year.
