How To Develop Your Own Sequential Spelling Tests. AVKO "Great Idea" Reprint Series No. 620.
Based on the concept that the natural way of learning is by making mistakes in which immediate self-correction takes place, this booklet discuses how teachers can develop their own sequential spelling tests. The booklet discusses the five steps in giving a sequential spelling test (read the word aloud, students repeat the word, students attempt to spell the word, teacher shows the correct spelling of the word, and students correct the spelling of the word before going on to the next word). The booklet also discusses how to determine which word families to teach and offers sequencing patterns so that teachers can run through all the patterns of English spelling. (RS)
