Abstract/ Summary

While many education trends come and go, one issue remains a constant concern for teachers, administrators and parents—teaching spelling well in elementary schools. Gail Gibson, fifth grade teacher and principal at Mapleton (Maine) Elementary School will explain how teachers at her school worked with parents and each other to reform spelling instruction when she presents, “Spelling Inquiry: How One Elementary School Caught the Mnemonic Plague.” Her talk will serve as the keynote address at the University of Maine College of Education and Human Development Conference, Learning By Inquiry, to be held Tuesday, May 4, from 4-8 p.m. at Wells Conference Center.
