Unit 3: Spelling. Transforming Key Stage 3. NLS KS3 Literacy Progress Units (Adapted for Whole Class Use). The National Literacy Strategy.
Department for Education and Skills, London (England).
Adapted for whole class use, this unit is intended to help Key Stage 3 pupils in England who have attained Level 3 in English to improve their spelling further. The sequence of 21 sessions revisits and builds on objectives from the primary "Framework" in the way envisaged in the "Framework for Teaching English at Key Stage 3." The pace of each 20-minute session is deliberately fast, and each session is built around the following teaching sequence: remember, model, try, apply, and secure. Each 20-minute session has a dual focus, reflecting the division of Year 7 spelling objectives into Rules and Strategies: the first 10 minutes of each session focus on a specific rule, while the second 10 minutes feature a particular strategy. Sessions are linked with a pupil workbook called the"Spellofax" which can be made into a booklet for each pupil. The Spellofax enables pupils to build a cumulative record of their learning through a sequence of "Spelling Challenges." (RS)
