Department for Education and Employment, London (England).
The Department for Education and Employment's "The Year 7 Spelling Bank" is intended to support teachers in England in teaching spelling systematically and enjoyably in ways which help students to develop a positive perspective on themselves as spellers. This booklet contains a bank of teaching ideas to help in the teaching of word level objectives in Key Stage 3. Some objectives are explored through a number of activities and are approached from different angles in a deliberate attempt to embed understanding; for each objective there are suggestions for teaching that objective with the whole class and through group activities, as well as a bank of useful words. The booklet is divided into the following sections: Introduction; Spelling Objectives from Year 7 of the "Framework for Teaching English: Years 7, 8 and 9"; Objective 1: Vowel Choices; Objective 2: Pluralisation; Objective 3: Word Endings; Objective 4: Prefixes; Objective 5: High-frequency Words; Objective 6: Apostrophes; Objective 7: Key Words; Objective 8: Personal Spelling Development; Objective 9: Phonemes and Syllables; Objective 10: Analogy; Objective 11: Strategies for Learning Spellings; Objective 12: Using a Dictionary; Objective 13: Spellcheckers; Appendix 1: Spelling List; Appendix 2: Subject Spelling Lists; and Appendix 3: Sample Spelling Investigations.
