Abstract
Background and Statement of the Problem "There is no program, no book, no speller, no machine that alone will build language competence in a child. Unfortunately, spelling can’t be isolated from other language processes, from attitudes toward reading and writing, from homes where print power is seen as valuable, from classrooms where words are recognized as treasures, and where teachers act as guides to that wealth rather than wardens who keep it for themselves." - David Booth in Spelling Links (1991)
