Hello all, I've never felt that I've managed the teaching of spellings as well as I could do. Needless to say, I have students who produce A grade work who can article rules for the use of it's/its, complete contextual work, but still make the same mistake. I've taught them to focus on one rule at once, but (perhaps with laziness/lack of reflection) the same mistakes are still being made. I've thought, with another colleague, about going into a primary school to see how they roll out their spelling policy. But while I think there is every chance they have more focussed strategies (and trained expertise) I wonder how applicable that would be to the secondary school classroom in practice. Therefore, does anyone have any thoughts/resources/links about spelling in KS3/4? And do you live in Yorkshire? :-D Apologies if there are threads answering this already - I couldn't find any for KS3/4 using the forum search.
