Pan, Steven C.; Rickard, Timothy C.; Bjork, Robert A. – Educational Psychology Review, 2021
A century ago, spelling skills were highly valued and widely taught in schools using traditional methods, such as weekly lists, drill exercises, and low- and high-stakes spelling tests. That approach was featured in best-selling textbooks such as the "Horn-Ashbaugh Speller" of 1920. In the early 21st century, however, skepticism as to…

Templeton, Shane – Reading Teacher, 2020
Competing theories are quite common in education. In spelling research, two general perspectives have emerged over the years: stage theory and repertoire/alternative theories. Exploring these perspectives is important because teachers need to understand how spelling knowledge is critical for learning to read words and to write them. Stage theory…

Chen, Yi-Jui Iva; Cunningham, Anne E.; Rabe-Hesketh, Sophia; Hinshaw, Stephen P.; Irey, Robin C. – Reading Research Quarterly, 2021
Many words in English resemble one another in multiple ways. Words with similar spellings are referred to as "orthographic neighbors." The purpose of this within-subject experimental study was to examine the effect of orthographic neighbors on the spelling acquisition of second-grade students. In each of five sessions of a computer-based…

Colenbrander, Danielle; Parsons, Liam; Bowers, Jeffrey S.; Davis, Colin J. – Reading Research Quarterly, 2022
Research syntheses have demonstrated that morphological instruction can improve the literacy skills of poor readers and spellers. However, studies have used a wide variety of training methods. Questions remain about what type of morphological instruction is most effective and under which circumstances. In this study, we conducted a randomized…

Sargiani, Renan de Almeida; Ehri, Linnea C.; Maluf, Maria Regina – Reading Research Quarterly, 2022
In this experiment, we examined whether beginning readers benefit more from grapheme-phoneme decoding (GPD) than from whole-syllable decoding (WSD) instruction in learning to read and write words. Sixty Brazilian Portuguese-speaking first graders (M age = 6 years 1 month) who knew letter names but could not read or write words were randomly…

Walter, Kirsty; Dockrell, Julie; Connelly, Vince – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2021
Children who struggle with writing are a heterogeneous group and may experience difficulties in a range of domains, including spelling, reading, and oral language. These difficulties are reflected in their writing and may influence their responsiveness to writing interventions. The effectiveness of a targeted sentence-combining intervention to…

Blampain, Elise; Gosse, Claire; Van Reybroeck, Marie – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2021
While copying skills are used daily at school and involve spelling abilities, studies examining copying performance in children with dyslexia are very scarce. The present study aims to determine whether children with dyslexia present a specific deficit in their copying processes or if their difficulties in copying are a consequence of their…

Williams, Gareth J.; Larkin, Rebecca F.; Rose, Naomi V.; Whitaker, Emily; Roeser, Jens; Wood, Clare – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2021
Purpose: This study investigated the orthographic knowledge and how orthographic and phonological information could support children with developmental language disorder (DLD) to make more accurate spelling attempts. Method: Children with DLD (N = 37) were matched with chronological age-matched (CAM) children and language age-matched children.…

Turkel, Ali – International Journal of Assessment Tools in Education, 2020
The purpose of this study is to develop a scale to determine Primary Education and Turkish Language teachers' perceptions regarding the frequency of spelling mistakes which their students make. Therefore, this experimental form made to serve this goal was presented to field specialists in terms of consultation; and each item in the form was…

Daigle, Daniel; Berthiaume, Rachel; Costerg, Agnès; Plisson, Anne; Ruberto, Noémia; Varin, Joëlle – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2020
The French orthographic code is complex, and its acquisition is laborious (Catach, 2008; Fayol & Jaffré, 2008). Three hypotheses attempt to explain orthographic knowledge acquisition (OKA). For some, exposure to the code leads to OKA through a self-learning process (Share, 2004). For others, OKA benefits from graphophonological processes…

Sosland, Blanche E. – Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, 2022
Although twice exceptional students are gradually receiving more recognition and intervention, they are still a grossly underserved segment of the school population. "A Call to Action: Identification and Intervention for Twice and Thrice Exceptional Students" begins with basic information about twice exceptional students--students who…

Jevtovic, Mina; Antzaka, Alexia; Martin, Clara D. – Cognitive Science, 2022
English-speaking children and adults generate "orthographic skeletons" (i.e., preliminary orthographic representations) solely from aural exposure to novel words. The present study examined whether skilled readers generate orthographic skeletons for all novel words they learn or do so only when the words have a unique possible spelling.…

Harley, Anita – Research-publishing.net, 2022
Anita Harley, Phonics Lead at Princecroft Primary School in the rural town of Warminster in the UK, describes how a focus on teacher development and using Sounds-Write with fidelity has resulted in increased attainment in phonics and spelling for children, the vast majority of whom now meet or exceed expected standards. [For the complete volume,…

Zhang, Lan; Treiman, Rebecca – Scientific Studies of Reading, 2020
Young spellers must learn to symbolize the sounds in words with phonologically appropriate letters. Do children use their knowledge about their own names to do this, performing better on sound--letter correspondences in their name than expected on the basis of other factors? According to some theories, children learn the spelling of their name as…

Bahr, Ruth Huntley; Silliman, Elaine R.; Berninger, Virginia W. – Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools, 2020
Purpose: Morphology, which is a bridge between phonology and orthography, plays an important role in the development of word-specific spellings. This study, which employed longitudinal sampling of typically developing students in Grades 3, 4, and 5, explored how the misspellings of words with derivational suffixes shed light on the interplay of…
