The teacher pack includes the Spelling Under Scrutiny teacher’s guide, a CD of all reproducible blackline masters and student activity sheets (with answers), and a copy of the English Spelling Dictionary (see description of this resource under English Spelling Dictionary).
Spelling Under Scrutiny is designed to improve the spelling skills of upper primary, secondary and adult students. An initial assessment identifies the gaps in students’ spelling knowledge. The instructional guidelines that follow allow for a quick or thorough approach to instruction, which means instruction can be differentiated to meet students’ learning needs.
A supplement to using Spelling Under Scrutiny is included here, along with an easier to use marking master for the Pseudoword assessment (Topic 9, Syllables) and fuller answers for the activity books.
