Spelling strategies evaluation

This was designed to be used with a group of dyslexic learners but would be applicable for any learners with spelling difficulties.

I have used this by separating the group into small groups or pairs and then giving each group a different strategy to try with one of the words from the word list (two are provided – one for E2-E3, one for L1-2) or a word of their own that they want to spell.

The learners get 10 minutes with each strategy and then need to evaluate the strategy. At the end of the session they state which strategies they liked and use them to learn some spellings taken from their own writing.
