For many years spelling has been taught in isolation from other subjects# The children were Ted a measured diet of a certain number of words each day or week, with the hope that they would transfer this learning to the functional field of writing.

Today in the better schools, teachers are recognizing that the primary objective of spelling instruction is to enable the children to express themselves in activities which involve written expression.

Effort has been n made to provide practical and usable techniques and methods for teaching spelling without sug; testing detail©! or dogmatic procedures. To achieve an understanding of the problems of children and to attain greater skill in guiding them in intelligent, resourceful, and happy living, should be the goal of every teacher. This study attempts to chart the way for directing the study of spelling and methods of teaching spelling so that the children may more readily achieve success in spelling.
