SERIES: Focus on spelling
PUBLISHED: Portland : Stenhouse Publishers ; c2000.
DESCRIPTION: 4 video cassettes (30 min. each) : sd., col. , 1/2 in + 1 teachers guide.

NOTES: Four tapes in a case.
NOTES: 1. Learning words; 2. Exploring sounds; 3. Investigating letter and spelling patterns; 4. Discovering generalizations.
NOTES: 1. [Learning words] The teachers demonstrate the most effective ways for children to learn words. This includes learning high-frequency words and personal words that individuals select from their own writing. The strategies and processes shown may be used at all grade levels. Effective use of a word wall and issues such as proofreading and assessment of spelling are also demonstrated.--2. [Exploring sounds] One of the strategies used by competent spellers is to listen for the sounds in words and represent those sounds with letters. In this video, the teachers show how they help children develop these sound-symbol relationships and understand how a phoneme in English words may be represented in many ways. By observing these teachers in their classrooms, we learn how the emphasis on the phonetic strategy changes across different grade levels. --3. [Investigating letter and spelling patterns] Children learn to recognize letters of the alphabet and focus on common spelling patterns so they can develop visual strategies to assist their spelling and reading. We see how children become actively engaged in learning about words through their own word searches. --4. [Discovering generalizations] Children learn such generalizations as how to add suffixes to base words or how to select the correct homophone (there, their, or they're) in their writing. The process is one that can be applied to learning about many aspects of spelling with all grade levels and can be used with small groups or the entire class.
