Super Spellers

Seven Steps to Transforming Your Spelling Instruction

Many teachers are frustrated not only with how spelling traditionally is taught, but also with finding time to support young spellers with explicit strategy instruction. So Mark Weakland has developed Super Spellers, an approach to teaching spelling in a way that is research-based, focused, developmentally appropriate, and tied to authentic reading and writing.

Mark does not advocate adopting a new “spelling program”; instead he shows you how to transform what you’re already doing. He’s made spelling instruction approachable and completely doable.
