1) Same-Language-Subtitling - can significantly impact literacy and reading growth - especially in context of high interest media. Add this captioning format to music video and there would be a direct rise in student reading scores.
2) Creating Dynamically Subtitled media: students (and teachers) can make their own media products - this is also a highly engaging, literacy rich activity for students on any level.
