From Amazon:

The Joy of Knowing How to Learn focuses on spelling in the first of the language skills series. Spelling currently ranks high on the list of language skills to teach early in school, according to recent research, as it has been found to play an important role in advancing reading and other language skills. This workbook includes a proven and tested ten-step study program that teaches learning how to spell, filling a need for materials that actually take students through successful learning steps. Students can expect to 1) make the spelling process automatic and 2) master 100 commonly misspelled words. Further study then can be independent, as students are able to spell additional words they need to learn. Included are the following: • Information for parents and educators • Instructions for students • Pre- and Post- tests • Ten-step learning process • 100 commonly misspelled words Expect success for a wide range of students, including special needs students, English language learners, homeschoolers and any others who benefit from direct spelling instruction, regardless of age or grade level. The study words, usually introduced in Grades 1-4, have been shown to continue as problem words for writers of all ages.

"Language Skills Series 1: Spelling should be helpful for students who struggle with the correct spelling of common words. Many of the commonly-misspelled words defy phonetic rules, and an approach such as this might be the solution."
