Spelling Is as Spelling Does: Alternative Techniques for Teaching Spelling to Learning Disabled Students in the University.
McKernan, Cheryl C.
A professor involved with the HELDS project (Higher Education for Learning Disabled Students) discusses ways to modify instruction to accommodate students' spelling difficulties. Among methods cited are using chalkboards and quizzes to help students learn, re-explaining or presenting new concepts by using other kinds of formats or diagrams, teaching mnemonic devices, and modifying an inductive spelling program (appended) to include deductive tasks. Among other appendixes are a course syllabus and an example of a self-correcting spelling quiz. (CL)
