This teacher's manual has been written as a guide for using Spell-Write (revised edition,1998).
Spell-Write (revised) is based on the important principle that spelling is primarily a skill of writing that is best mastered within the context of learning to write. An important goal for this manual is to help translate this principle into classroom practice.
It contains updated and expanded sections on:
the issue of spelling
the structure of Spell-Write (revised)
the identifiable stages of learning to spell
classroom spelling programmes
assessing spelling and evaluating progress (including examples from the Assessment Resource Banks).
