Closed Captioning for ELLs

How do we use closed captioning features with our students? Remember, closed captioning can be edited to change size, color and words in editable DE clips.

Our ELL educators brainstormed ideas this morning:
-Always run closed captions with videos if they are available
-Highlight key vocabulary words
-Ask comprehension questions
-Change the names of the characters
-Change vocabulary to make it comprehensible
-Turn off sound and have students read the words aloud
-Include translations
-Take extraneous information out
-Add one vocabulary word to describe a scene

What are some other ideas?
