One Afternoon in an Elysian Field: Socrates' Academy Addresses Spelling.
Language Arts, v75 n2 p97-102 Feb 1998
Offers a fanciful dialog between Socrates and his followers to present findings about spelling development. Discusses the work of two scholars (Frank Smith and Steven Krashen); then discusses various hypotheses. Concludes that effective spellers get to be that way because they read as if they were writers; and a strong relationship exists between reading, writing, and spelling. (SR)
