Malt Joshi: Spelling: What Research Says and How It's Taught

 

Spelling: What Research Says and How It's Taught

Dr. R. Malatesha (Malt) Joshi Ph.D

Spelling is a window on a person’s knowledge of words and improving spelling not only helps writing but also vocabulary and reading. However, our research has shown that spelling is not explicitly taught in schools. Further, not only many classroom teachers and university professors do not know the principles of English spelling but even the textbooks used in teacher preparation programs have given incorrect information.
