How to teach children reading and spelling
The effectiveness of the Dutch reading and spelling didactic ‘How to teach children reading and spelling’ (HTCRS), developed by Schraven (1994/2013) was empirically tested in children attending special education. HTCRS is based on the principles of direct and classroom instruction, and the task analysis of reading and spelling. Reading and spelling performance of first-grade pupils from three different schools was longitudinally tested from the beginning until the end of the first school year. There were no differences in literacy skills at the beginning, but at the end of the year substantially better performance emerged for those pupils who received instruction according to the HTCRS approach. Theoretically-based principles underlying HTRCS are presented as well as the main aspects of the didactics.
