I agree that this strategy would aid students with and without learning differences. This form of instruction has clear guidelines for students and offers a self-check component. Students would be able to begin revision with a greater independence. Mini lessons spoken of in the book "Mentor Texts:Teaching Writing Through Children's Literature K-6" would work to well to aid in instruction of these individual skills. The only concern I have is in the "S" step of the strategy.Poor spellers would have difficulty simply looking at word to determine accuracy. I would ask that students speak word(s) into macbook using dictation and have computer aid in spelling of word(s).
