Attitudes of K-6 Teachers towards Invented Spelling.
Von Lehmden-Koch, Cheryl A.
A study determined attitudes of elementary teachers of grades K-6 towards the use of invented spelling. Twenty-nine teachers in two rural school districts in Northwest Ohio completed a questionnaire designed to investigate the extent of whole language use, spelling strategies taught, and attitudes towards invented spelling. Results indicated that teachers in the primary grades (K-3) were more accepting of the use of invented or phonetic spelling than the teachers in the intermediate grades (4-6). Findings suggest that teachers were not pleased with the way they actually taught spelling and that there was little correlation between how spelling was actually taught and how the teachers thought it should be taught.
