The first part of the book provides specific information about management of the class spelling program, and details about goals and other means of assessment.

Chapters in the book are: (1) The Basis for Teaching Spelling; (2) Achieving Spelling Competency; (3) Class Explorations and Student Responsibilities; (4) Assessment; (5) Exploring Sound/Symbol Relationships; (6) The Structure of Words; (7) Creating Words; (8) Shortened Words; (9) The Positive Apostrophe; (10) Alternative Spellings; and (11) Games for Playing with Words.
