Elementary school teachers have begun to rethink how children learn about spelling and punctuation and what the role of the school should be in that process. You Kan Red This! is a comprehensive handbook for K-6 teachers that answers questions like these: How can I integrate spelling and punctuation into writing? How do I know if my students are learning and improving? Can (or should) I throw out the spelling books? How can I show that invented spelling works? When, if ever, should I tell kids how to spell words? Are there ways to focus on spelling and punctuation that won't be boring?Wilde, Sandra is the author of 'You Kan Red This! Spelling and Punctuation for Whole Language Classrooms, K-6', published 1991 under ISBN 9780435085957 and ISBN 0435085956.
