For more than 20 years, Better Spelling has provided a focused, successful approach to spelling. Students learn to identify common spelling errors and to apply straightforward rules to correct these errors. The text is split into auditory-centered and visual-centered problems. Two diagnostic tests, one problem-word test, and a proofreading test allow students to focus on areas where they need to improve.
