Due to the COVID-19 crisis, our office is currently closed. Unfortunately, this means that we cannot take orders for our publications until we re-open.

This updated edition of Understanding Spelling (originally a CLPE publication) from Routledge provides both theoretical and practical explanations of how children learn to spell and the kinds of teaching which support them most effectively.

Understanding Spelling is based on a three-year longitudinal study of children’s spelling in different primary classrooms. The book poses a number of questions. What different kinds of knowledge are involved in spelling? What are the links between learning to read and learning to spell? What kinds of systematic teaching and interventions make a difference to children’s progress?

The book contains clear guidelines on teaching spelling throughout the primary school.
