Fresch, Mary Jo; Wheaton, Aileen; Zutell, Jerome B.
National Reading Conference Yearbook, v47 p285-94 1998
Examines how fifth-grade students at different stages of spelling approach open-word sorting activities with familiar words. Demonstrates the value of using open sorts as a means of assessing student thinking about words. Suggests that teachers should be careful using scaffolding techniques--they need to establish the nature and purpose of sorting in order to increase its instructional power. (SR)
