Open Access Graduate Research Paper
English language--Orthography and spelling--Study and teaching (Elementary);
The purpose of this project is to create a three day workshop focused on a word study curriculum that is based on the developmental theory of spelling. The audience for this workshop would be elementary teachers (first through fifth grade) who are interested in developing a spelling curriculum that is based on current research and individual student needs. The workshop would introduce current research and teach teachers how to analyze student spelling errors. It would also focus on three main questions for developing a word study curriculum: How do I assess and evaluate students?; How do I group and manage students?; and What are daily classroom procedures and instructional practices? The workshop will include hands-on activities and time for teachers to begin designing their own word study curriculum.
