Spelling.
McCracken, Marlene; McCracken, Robert
Insights into Open Education, v9 n3 Entire Issue Nov 1976
The teaching of spelling is outlined and discussed in this pamphlet. Three major steps are described: the prewriting stage, teaching the principle of alphabetic writing--the understanding that spelling requires the sequencing of sounds within a word, and teaching the spelling patterns of written English. The pamphlet concludes that two current practices are detrimental to children in developing spelling skills: teaching spelling words and demanding perfect spelling. (JM)
