Spelling Instruction

I ran across this document on the internet that is an excerpt of an article about spelling instruction in language arts classrooms. It has some good lists of words (commonly misspelled words for 1-8)-root words list, etc. It also has some good ideas for spelling instruction and how to make it more individualized. It mentioned the research on how weekly memorized lists do not make a child a better spelling.

I am going to have my 6th graders keep a word study/spelling notebook next year and will use some of the ideas from this article.
