Why Teach Spelling?

This resource is a compilation of three documents that support the teaching of spelling in today's schools: a discussion of "Why Spelling Instruction Matters," a checklist for evaluating a spelling program, and tables of Common Core State Standards that are linked to spelling instruction. For your convenience, we have also included a Word formatted file of the checklist that is downloadable for use in evaluating your own spelling program.
