Launch Coincides With Dr. Caleb Gattegno Centennial Celebrations and
UNESCO's International Literacy Day
NEW YORK, Sept. 7, 2011 /CNW/ - Educational Solutions Worldwide Inc.
(ESWI) today announced the launch of the first ever edition of the
world-renowned Words In Color reading program that is suitable for use
outside the traditional classroom format.
The launch comes during this year's centennial of the birth of Dr. Caleb
Gattegno, who developed Words In Color to solve the problem of
literacy, and has been timed to coincide with UNESCO's International
Literacy Day (Sept. 8).
"Dr. Gattegno was a member of the UNESCO mission on literacy in Ethiopia
in 1957 when he got the first inspiration that would lead to the
development of Words in Color," said ESWI CEO Eaton Donald. "The system
of breaking down the entire English language into its basic phonetic
sound groups and codifying them in color was quickly adopted in more
than 40 counties. "
The Words in Color 100th Anniversary Edition can be used without special training on the part of the person who is
teaching the program and is ideal for parents wishing to participate in
their children's education. The edition is also highly accessible to
para-professional teachers of English wishing to make a positive impact
on their students of any age.
On International Literacy Day each year, UNESCO reminds the
international community of the status of literacy and adult learning
globally. Despite many and varied efforts, literacy remains an elusive
target: some 793 million adults lack minimum literacy skills which
means that about one in six adults is still not literate; 67.4 million
children are out-of-school and many more attend irregularly or drop
"We are determined more than ever to spread what we believe is a
solution to literacy that is designed to use our natural abilities to
learn and is, therefore, guaranteed to bring success to those who
choose to adopt it," said Mr. Donald.
Educational Solutions is offering the special edition at a discounted price during the Gattegno anniversary. Please, use
