An Analysis of High-Frequency Words Found in Commerical Spelling Series and Misspelled in Students' Writing.
DiStefano, Philip; Hagerty, Patricia
Journal of Educational Research, v76 n3 p181-85 Jan-Feb 1983
Eleven spelling series were analyzed by grade level to determine their use of high-frequency words, and students' writing samples were examined for misspellings of such words. Researchers found considerable variation among word lists in the series and suggest that student writing may be a better source of words for spelling lists. (PP)
