The teaching of the different spelling knowledges (morphemic, etymological, phonological and visual) is a way of building the linguistic skills and processes that students need to become proficient spellers. These spelling knowledges also provide a useful framework for teachers to assess students’ strengths and weaknesses in spelling and to identify areas where students can improve their spelling by building their existing linguistic know-how.

This workshop will look at examples of students’ writing and analyse the spelling – what they get right and wrong – through the lens of the knowledges. Participants will then have the opportunity to use this strategy to analyse spelling in student written texts.
