Description

U-CAN Colour Dictionary is a unique and remarkable response to the simmering literacy crisis that undermines the inherent gifts and capacities of millions of citizens. It is a ‘handbook’ for non-readers and new readers that begins at the beginning with one-letter words, then two-letter words, and then grows simply and elegantly into a carefully selected introductory English vocabulary.

Recent research confirms that adding COLOUR to basic literacy skills dramatically increases the speed and capacity of learning.  Attention is more focused;, learning is enhanced.  It is a significant contribution to literacy learning and learners everywhere.
