Scope in the Spelling Curriculum.
Ediger, Marlow
Which words should students master in spelling? Language arts teachers can involve pupils in planning a list of words to learn to spell through a specific activity or experience, with sequentially planned lists aiding each learner to become a better speller. Pupil-teacher planning to determine scope and sequence in the spelling curriculum should include meeting the unique needs of each pupil, continuing learner involvement in word choices, and helping learners perceive relevance in what is being learned. Spelling words coming from diverse units of study in social studies, science, mathematics, and reading truly reflect correlation in the curriculum. Reputable textbooks are a valuable resource. Teaching spelling should include providing interesting and meaningful experiences for the learner. (CR)
