Writers need to be able to spell words accurately to communicate through writing. Spelling (encoding) means recording words correctly and consistently. Expert spellers use a range of strategies to work out unknown words. Before they can develop spelling strategies, learners must have developed some basic prerequisite skills and understandings, including phonological and phonemic awareness. Learners also need to be able to form letters correctly. While some adult learners may not have developed all of these prerequisite skills, the first step in this progression describes learners who have acquired them and can write some basic words correctly.
