Levels of Spelling You See
Spelling You See's carefully designed approach empowers instructors (parents, teachers, and tutors) to help students develop skills and confidence in spelling through an effective, engaging, low-stress learning experience. Developing confidence in spelling skills contributes to developing effective written communication skills, which are important for success in higher education and adult life. Also, this successful approach can foster a student’s lifelong love of learning that transfers to all subject areas.
The Learning Format
Spelling You See’s consistent format guides students through the five essential activities: listening, reading, chunking, copywork, and dictation (presented at the appropriate developmental stage). These activities help students transfer the correct spellings of common words they see in print to long-term memory, enabling them to eventually be able to reproduce the correct spellings in their everyday writing. Lessons are limited to short daily sessions to keep interest and enthusiasm high. There are no word lists to memorize and no weekly tests. Spelling You See is a program based on years of research into how students learn to spell. Students become effective communicators as they grasp the proper spelling of words in the English language.
