How Do You Spell...? A Teacher's Guide to Spelling Instruction.
Texas Education Agency, Austin.
Noting that just as some children learn to read with little instructional assistance, some will learn to spell accurately with little or no help from their teachers, this teacher's guide presents activities and suggestions that serve as a resource for instructional planning rather than a recipe to be followed in precisely measured steps. After an overview about spelling in Texas and a discussion of generalizations about effective spelling, sections of the teacher's guide present the developmental stages in learning to spell, instructional vignettes and activities for classrooms, additional instructional activities, and sample letters to parents and a sample student survey. Contains 40 references. Appendixes present a sample test item, a self-corrected test, and a "Have-a-Go" sheet. (RS)
