Spelling Instruction in the Middle Years
Scott, Ruth McQuirter
Language and Literacy Spectrum, v14 p13-21 Spr 2004
This article advocates continued attention to spelling in the middle years. Students need systematic spelling instruction from grades one through eight that is appropriate to the developmental stages of learning to spell. Teachers are encouraged to include both spelling patterns and spelling strategies in their spelling curriculum and provide links between the formal study of spelling and its application in writing contexts across the curriculum.
