Lindfield Learning Hub is proud to supply schools with texts associated with the Multi-lit programs.  Please see below for book packs for the following programs: PreLit, MiniLit, InitiaLit-FInitiaLit-1 and InitiaLit-2.

"MultiLit was coined as an acronym for ‘Making Up Lost Time In Literacy’ in 1995 to refer to the ongoing program of research and development into more effective instruction for low-progress reader. Their approach is to find out what skills students do have and which areas are cause for concern, and to then fill in their knowledge with direct, systematic and intensive teaching of these skills.
