Teaching Spelling to English Language Learners

Teaching Spelling to English Language Learners

Do your learners struggle with spelling?

This essential manual answers three challenging questions: Why is there a problem with teaching and learning spelling? What can be done about it? How can this be accomplished?

The first part of the book helps teachers understand the systems of English spelling and the regularities, which are not necessarily phonological. It explores the errors that learners really make and the challenges faced by teachers.

The second part outlines a fresh, new, multi-dimensional approach to teaching spelling which recognises the need for learner engagement and strategy training as well as work on the patterns found in English orthography.

The final part of the book presents over seventy engaging and effective activities which are designed to develop a range of strategies and knowledge about English spelling.
