This study proposes to contribute something to the experimental work which has already been done in trying to determine the value of the various methods of teaching and learning to spell words. It should lay a basis for an effective spelling program at Pickard High School, Brenham, Texas, or at any secondary school that does not have a definite plan for improving the spelling habits of its students.

This investigation is limited to the methods used in improving the spelling habits of students in grades ten, eleven, and twelve at Pickard High School, Brenham, Texas. No word analysis was made as to types of errors. Neither was a comparison made of the merits of one method over another. The research material used here is limited to available articles and books by noted authorities written within the last fifteen years.
