Background: Due to COVID-19, many educators and allied health practitioners are facing the challenge of rapidly transitioning to telepractice delivery of instructional reading and spelling procedures without being fully informed of the evidence. Aims: A rapid review was conducted to provide educators, allied health practitioners and policymakers…

Burton, Lauren; Nunes, Terezinha; Evangelou, Maria – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
Background: Intervention studies have reported the advantage of teaching children about morphemes for spelling, but direct comparisons between explicit and implicit teaching have been examined systematically in relation to only a few morphological rules. Aims: This study compared explicit versus implicit teaching of the functional rule for the…

Colenbrander, Danielle; Wang, Hua-Chen; Arrow, Tara; Castles, Anne – Educational and Developmental Psychologist, 2020
Instruction in regular letter-sound relationships is a key element of teaching children to read. However, in the English language, many words have irregular spellings (e.g. "said," "are," "yacht"). What is the best way to help children learn to read these words? To date, a number of different viewpoints have been put…

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…

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…

Vines, Nora; Jordan, Jennifer; Broemmel, Amy D. – Reading Teacher, 2020
Spelling instruction has been researched over the last several decades, but unfortunately, researchers have determined that best practices have not generally transferred to classroom practice. The authors explored how quality word study professional development rooted in nonnegotiable tenets provided a framework for teacher and student…

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…

Schrodt, Katie; FitzPatrick, Erin; Elleman, Amy – Reading Teacher, 2020
Research has indicated that adding mind-set and self-regulation strategy instruction to the writers' workshop framework may improve motivation, independence, and academic success in young writers. Invented spelling can strengthen the relation between phonological and orthographic representations. The authors examined the impact of growth mind-set…

Hsiang, Tien Ping; Graham, Steve; Wang, Zhisheng; Gong, Yang – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2021
In language arts programs in the Greater China Region, textbooks are the primary materials used to teach children to read and write. Learning to read and write in Chinese is particularly challenging because elementary grade students are expected to learn, recognize, and write thousands of characters (the basic linguistic unit in Chinese).…

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…

Silva, Cristina; Peixoto, Francisco; Salvador, Liliana – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2021
Our aim was to assess the effect of a self-correction spelling tool based on orthographic revision procedures on third-grade children's orthographic performance. This tool consisted of grids displaying explicit contextual, phonological and morphological rules. Participants were 70 third-grade students, randomly assigned to an experimental (N = 35)…

Daffern, Tessa; Fleet, Robert – Australian Journal of Learning Difficulties, 2021
Empirical evidence supports the view that explicit teaching can make a positive difference to learning; however, further research is needed to understand the impact on learning to spell if spelling error analysis is used to inform explicit spelling instruction. This paper presents findings of an intervention study involving 572 students in Years 3…

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…

Daffern, Tessa; Mackenzie, Noella Maree – Literacy, 2020
Spelling is a key transcription skill for writing. While little is understood about the particular challenges some students experience when learning to spell, explicit instruction is known to improve spelling performance. The study reported in this article draws on eight case studies from a larger Australian mixed-methods study examining spelling…
