Abstract

Learning how to spell is a complex, developmental process. This research paper describes how second grade students improved their spelling development in the context of daily reading and writing. Realizing that instruction in spelling patterns and strategies is needed for most students, this paper describes how instruction was based upon the results of the Developmental Spelling Test and the students' writing samples. Four case studies will be presented in order to provide an in-depth look at the improvements that were demonstrated by the class as a whole.
