a deeper approach to spelling needs to be adopted in which the focus is on word games, affixes, Latin and Greek root words, commonly misspelled words, and words that are used frequently.

Ultimate Spelling, a product by eReflect, is a spelling tutor program that allows users to learn to spell with ease. The unique teaching and learning strategies pioneered by the software have resulted in the rising popularity of the product, especially among students. As the eReflect team noted in a recent statement, this is largely due to the contemporary approach adopted by Ultimate Spelling, in which users are encouraged to learn spelling in a fun and easy interactive manner, rather than by rote learning of word lists.

Douglas Fisher and Nancy Frey recently published a study titled “Engaging the Adolescent Learner” that highlighted that many students are unable to easily learn spelling through the traditional methods, such as memorizing lists and weekly spelling tests. Rather, a deeper approach to spelling needs to be adopted in which the focus is on word games, affixes, Latin and Greek root words, commonly misspelled words, and words that are used frequently.

The eReflect team was pleased to highlight the similarity between the features of their software and the basic points put forward by the study in their briefing today. As the team stated, the “Engaging the Adolescent Learner” study highlighted that the instructional approach adopted by teachers should be one that focuses on allowing students to think about the spelling of the words in terms of sounds, patterns, and relationship with other words.

Another research study, published by Diane Henry Leipzig, highlighted the importance of using the word study approach towards learning spelling. The researcher concluded that rather than adopting the traditional approach to spelling instruction based on drill and practice, tutors must adopt a word study approach which focuses on designing word patterns to engage learners and accelerate the learning process.

“In light of recent research, we are more confident than ever that Ultimate Spelling can solve any user's spelling problems,” stated the eReflect team representative. Ultimate Spelling allows users to learn spellings by playing a range of interactive games including word games, flash cards, word search, crossword puzzles, word tags, and more.

Furthermore, Ultimate Spelling, unlike any other competitor's software, offers an extensive 142,647-word dictionary. The software also displays an array of information about each word. The team at eReflect believes that this information, which including definitions, rhymes, and word explorer, is an ideal way to enhancing the learning experience of the users.
