Closed captioning helps TV-watchers learn to read
My wife got an unsolicited tip from a random grandma in a store: When your kid is watching TV (no comment on that), you should turn on closed captioning. Random Grandma said her grandchild showed up for kindergarten reading at a third grade level. Haven't tried it ourselves since our kid's just hit six months, but we intend to when the inevitable happens. I'm curious if anyone else has done this and seen good results.
