Spelling Instruction and Development.
Boylan, Nancy L.
A study determined if significant differences existed between the mean scores of students receiving formal spelling instruction when compared with scores of students who did not receive any instruction in spelling. Subjects, 50 first-grade students, were given either formal spelling instruction throughout the week for 6 weeks or received no formal instruction. Both groups of students used the same phonics books and reading series. At the end of each week, all students were tested on 10 spelling words. Results indicated that students receiving formal spelling instruction scored better on the spelling tests than students who received no formal spelling instruction.
