Content and Specifications for the Mod 1 1970 Spelling Program.
Butler, Patricia A.
This paper briefly describes the organization and content of the Southwest Regional Laboratory (SWRL) Mod 1 Spelling Program and its relation to the SWRL Reading Program. The Mod 1 Spelling Program includes 190 words and consists of 22 lessons. Eighteen of the 22 lessons are based on review lists which are composed individually for each participating class on the basis of test results from the preceding four or five weeks of instruction. To produce compatibility of the reading and spelling programs, the Mod 1 Spelling Program gives primary status to word elements rather than to individual phonemes. With the exception of certain transfer words, all words included in the spelling program also occur in the reading program. The general objectives of the spelling program parallel those of the reading program in that both concentrate on the learning of transferable skills as well as on the learning of specific elements and words. Appendix A is a program outcomes chart. Appendix B gives samples of practice exercise items. (TS)
