Real Spellers

English Makes Sense!

Click HERE for a pdf of a special structured word inquiry episode grew from a simple question about the spelling of the word <awful> that went out to a small group of novice and experienced spelling scientists. 

The orthographic path travelled by this group of scholars is territory that everyone who continues on scientific inquiry of spelling encounters. I'm particularly proud of the way this community of scholars took on this challenge with a focus on building understanding, finding new questions, but not so much on "answers". I am confident that Real Spellers will gain a great deal out of considering the orthographic and scientific concepts addressed in this little 3 page conversation. And yet the question remains open at the end. I hope people will share further hypotheses and thinking in the comments section. We may even be able to come to an understanding of the spelling of <awful>!
