A research study that was conducted in a private East Tennessee school. The study compared the traditional ways of spelling instruction to oral nontraditional methods. The study lasted for two weeks and results showed that both methods are still useful and effective. However, depending on the children's personality and teacher's willingness to implement a new curriculum effects the outcome of such methods.
