Description

A guide to developing a successful spelling programme

Strategies for Spelling will open up a world of words that students can use in their writing, unrestricted by the number of words they can memorise. It introduces an effective spelling programme founded on four strategies that students can learn to use and flick between as they become adaptable, successful spellers. It also encourages a sense of purpose in learning to spell by including words students will need in a range of curriculum areas. The guided (“teaching with”) component is critical in establishing students’ knowledge of how words work and their accuracy in using them. Through this well-grounded programme, therefore, students can become excited about how words work, their meanings and their idiosyncrasies, and gain the confidence and the tools to tackle the words they need to express their ideas clearly through writing.
