The Effectiveness of Two Spelling Instruction Methods at the Second Grade Level.
Spagnoli, Diane L.
The goal of this study was to determine if spelling instruction was more effective when the words presented followed a general spelling pattern or when the words were randomly chosen with no correlation to spelling generalizations. In this six-week study, the spelling performance on pre and post spelling tests of nine boys and seven girls in grade two was investigated. The results suggested that both spelling instruction approaches were successful in assisting children to learn spelling words. (Contains 49 references and 2 tables of data. Appendixes contain spelling lists and 2 charts of data.) (Author/RS)
