Vocabulary Packs and Cued Spelling: Intervention Strategies.
Hodapp, Joan B.; Hodapp, Albert F.
This paper discusses two reading comprehension strategies for teachers to incorporate into their teaching methods. The paper reviews research and suggests techniques to support these strategies, vocabulary packs and cued spelling. Vocabulary packs, an effective strategy to increase reading comprehension, allow students to work independently on building mastery of key words and expressing those words in coherent and accurate sentences. Cued spelling, a technique that students can use with peers or parents, promotes mastery by motivated practice and memory cues selected by students. Teachers can use progress monitoring techniques to measure the effectiveness of these strategies for their students. (A 10-step procedure for cued spelling is appended; contains 9 references.)
