Spelling ability; Individualized instruction; Education, Primary


The purpose of this study, therefore, was to capsulize the findings of the experimenters and researchers in the recent past, with regard to the effects which an individualized program in spelling has upon the success of participating students. In the light of this information, it was hoped that the S.R.A. spelling kit materials to be used in the planned program could be partially evaluated before use, in order to avoid unnecessary errors in procedure once the project was under way. Some of the major questions basic to this study are: 1. What is individualization as a teaching method? 2. What are some of the ways in which spelling has been individualized? 3. What are some of the advantages of an individualized program, as opposed to a traditional workbook approach?
