Report of the Literature Search in the Area of Teaching Behavior in Spelling Instruction.
Hodges, Richard E.
As a part of the National Conference on Research in English cooperative research project concerning teacher behavior in the language arts, a literature survey was made to locate studies describing the behaviors of teachers during spelling instruction. The search was limited to studies reported during the period November 1966 to November 1971. Applying the selection criteria of the total project, no studies were found that clearly specified teaching behavior during spelling instruction. Spelling studies continue generally to be concerned with (1) the nature of the orthography, (2) learner variables, or (3) instructional method. While a comprehensive understanding of what constitutes effective spelling instruction must take into account these factors, teacher interaction with pupils during spelling instruction needs also to be accounted for. The effects of teaching behavior upon pupil achievement in spelling appears to be at least one factor warranting future study. (Author)
