This Keynote presentation features Book 2 of the Newitt Beginning Reading and Writing Program. The program provides a fundamental yet integrated approach to reading, writing, listening, and speaking the English language. The standards-based series of 24 books guides novice learners through a full year curriculum. Each lesson discovers, connects, and practices the basics of English.
A main feature of the program is that it uses linear incremental steps and repeated practices linked to higher level thinking skills. This approach gives the learner a solid foundation of reading and writing experiences. In the process, the learner gains routine study habits, motivation to learn, confidence, and mastery.
“Developmentally appropriate and challenging for all ages striving to learn English. The Newitt Beginning Reading and Writing Program will ensure success for every scholar that embarks on a path to learn the English language.”
