It can be self-paced, asynchronous learning or may be instructor-led, synchronous learning. It is suited to distance learning and in conjunction with face-to-face teaching, which is termed blended learning.
Diane Montgomery Spelling, Handwriting and Dyslexia Although there is much focus on literary difficulties in schools, the support provided to struggling pupils tends to emphasise the reading aspect, with spelling and handwriting often overlooked.
The author of this ground-breaking book argues that spelling and writing need to be given more consideration in teaching and remedial settings especially if dyslexic pupils are to be helped back up to grade level, and other pupils are to make more effective, quicker progress.
This book helps teachers and student teachers to understand the valuable contribution spelling and handwriting make to literacy development in primary and secondary schools, and shows them how to overcome existing barriers to learning.
Chapters cover such topics as: Undergraduate and postgraduate students in education and inclusion will also find much here of interest.

The contribution of spelling and writing has to a large extent been ignored or relegated to a minor role. Knight and Smith Although there is certainly a gap between what the research tells us and what is done in classrooms, the research on spelling is dwarfed by that on reading.
Remediation theory, research and practice likewise have been almost entirely geared to reading. It is for this reason that this book looks at literacy from the viewpoint of spelling and handwriting to try to show that their contribution to literacy has a far greater impact than they are given credit for.
To be literate is to be able to read and write with the same facility and understanding as that by which we speak.
There will be an acquisition, a development and a fluent stage and the processes, the methods of teaching, the research and operation may need to be different for each. These represent just a few issues which are raised as soon as we begin to investigate literacy and writing. Writing itself involves three main areas — spelling, handwriting and composition.
Part 1 Introduction Introduction The first three chapters in this book examine the nature of spelling, handwriting and dyslexia and their relationship to becoming literate and to each other. The key theme which links them is how can an understanding of each of them help us design and develop interventions which will work better and faster so that children become literate more easily and earlier.
In the meantime we have to recognise that some will take more time and effort and we need to cater for this. Teachers are daily confronted with the problem of deciding if, for those with slowly developing or poor literacy skills, they should: Each response has had a period when it has been in fashion, and cost has had a significant influence.
Looking at the needs of underachievers across the ability range we find that their major areas of difficulty lie in an inability to cope with all the written work that schools require them to do. Whatever the reasons for their difficulties there are enough of such pupils for us to thoroughly review the general teaching and learning needs of children.
This has led me in a number of researches and publications to propose that education in schools is over didactic and teacher dominated, a methodology which has been promoted by successive governments and their agencies.
It involves much teacher talk and pupil writing but these forms of teaching and learning need to be questioned for efficacy with school pupils. Although the ultimate aim of education may well be to develop the potential of each individual to the full, simply telling children information and practising responses is not the only way to do this.
By this I mean that we should reframe the provision in mainstream education by developing in every curriculum subject: These would not involve a change in curriculum content but small changes in the ways in which we teach it and the ways in which we enable children to learn.
