CCSS calls on teachers of reading to design "questions, tasks, and activities... to ensure that all students are actively engaged in reading" noting that “writing about text is an effective way to elicit this active engagement.” NEO2 works within an interactive classroom network, allowing teachers to easily facilitate such engagement. Additionally, NEO2 "Teach with It Now" (TWIN) activities and built in writing lessons and content-area vocabulary strategies provide teachers with much needed content and lesson ideas.
The CCSS for writing mention keyboarding as early as the third grade. By grade 4, the standards indicate that students should demonstrate sufficient command of keyboarding skills to type a one-page paper in a single sitting. By grade 5 this increases to two pages, and by grade 6 it increases to three. KeyWords, NEO 2’s built-in keyboarding curriculum is ideal for building proper keyboarding technique so students can meet the demands of the CCSS writing standards.
