Product Description:

By the same author as Spelling Plus, Susan Anthony, comes this program specifically for high school students. This is a one-year review of words most frequently misspelled by high school students, and in fact they account for over half of that group's misspellings. This list of 388 words overlaps with the word list in Spelling Plus, so if your student has completed Spelling Plus there is no need for them to complete Spell Well. This course incorporates the same techniques set forth in Spelling Plus and is a pretty straightforward approach to learning to spell words. A list of the 388 words in order of frequency of misspelling is given, followed by pages with the list broken down into 20-word groups for students to keep for review and spelling lists for daily practice. Suggestions for daily practice follow a specific formula - spell the word and read it, trace the word and read it, cover the model/write the word and read it, check from the model, check and correct the word you wrote, and close your eyes/spell the word and say it. Give a test on Friday and place misspelled words on the blank lines of student lists for repeated practice. Suggested dictation sentences are listed at the back of the book for use with each week's spelling list. If you've done the math, you know there are only 24 lists total, which isn't enough to do a new list each week for an entire school year. The author suggests that you use holiday weeks for review testing and additional study of difficult words. The goal of this program is mastery, which is the ability to spell a word correctly every time. By following the procedures in this book, students will practice the correct words in a way that should cement the spellings in their mind. ~ Donna

Have teenage grandchildren and wanted this to improve their writing skills

We are hopeful that this book will be helpful in strengthening my child's spelling skills. The book was developed from research on commonly misspelled words, which is precisely the weakness we are trying to strengthen!

Spelling is a required course in Texas and this looked like a good option for my high school students who had already completed eight grades of spelling instruction.
