Using Research to Make Informed Decisions about the Spelling Curriculum
Putman, Rebecca
Texas Journal of Literacy Education, v5 n1 p24-32 Sum 2017
Learning how to spell is important. Most people would agree that the ability to spell correctly is an essential trait of literate people, and that students must be taught how to spell correctly; however, there is still debate among parents, educators, and the public as to how spelling should be taught in the schools. This paper reexamines and compares the research on the traditional spelling curriculum with the research on word study in order to help educators make an informed decision about spelling instruction.
