About This Seminar

With the advent of spell check and rapid chat, spelling courses seem to have become a relic of the past and may soon take their place next to typewriters. Additionally, many students find memorizing lists of words tedious and thus boring. Do technological advances make spelling courses obsolete? Is there any other means of learning spelling than memorizing list after list of words? In this online seminar, Ben takes on the myths surrounding spelling and demonstrates that accurate spelling is as important today as it ever was. He also introduces a method of word study that engages more than just the memory and prepares students for the real-life application of spelling.
