Sequence, Program Words, and Sequence Rationale for the 1971 Revised First-Grade Spelling Program.
Pupils participating in the 1971-1972 tryout of the Southwest Regional Laboratory (SWRL) First Grade Spelling Program were taught to combine consonants and consonant clusters with word elements to form program words. This paper presents the sequence of instruction for these elements and the rationale used in deriving this sequence. In addition, it also provides a list of regular words, sign words, and transfer words, as well as lists of contrast items to be emphasized in teaching pupils to discriminate between elements and between vowel correspondences.
