Abstract:

This book describes a way to develop effective spellers--boys and girls who have a system for writing words accurately in their school compositions and in personal messages. Teachers know that to develop effective spellers, they must attend to helpful rules and to regular practice. Most research on effective spelling can be reduced to these two techniques: knowing the patterns of English spelling and writing regularly. Young writers need to know there is a system in English-language spelling that enables them to devise generalizations for solving spelling problems. By paying attention to the sound-spelling system and by developing related memory techniques, students establish the habits needed to spell accurately. This book puts spelling in perspective, teaches the important spelling patterns, shows children how to self-correct their writing, and demonstrates the regularity of English spelling. Based on a study of more than 16,000 student compositions, the book gives spelling instruction a practical focus that makes teaching and learning easier and improves performance. It is designed to help teachers motivate children, understand how children learn to spell, develop a teaching strategy for spelling, and know which areas to concentrate on. Appended are criteria for evaluating a spelling program, and words for a spelling program. Contains approximately 100 references. (Nka).
