Learning To Spell: Variability, Choice, and Change in Children's Strategy Use.
Rittle-Johnson, Bethany; Siegler, Robert S.
Child Development, v70 n2 p332-48 Mar-Apr 1999
Employed a trial-by-trial analysis of spelling-strategy use to examine whether the overlapping-waves model could account for strategy choices in spelling for children tested in first and second grade. Found that the model was useful for understanding the development of spelling, despite the fact that explicit use of backup strategies had a minimal impact on accuracy. (Author/KB)
