|Title||The Effect of the Cover, Copy and Compare Strategy on the Ninth Graders' Acquisition and Retention of Spelling and their Attitudes Towards the Strategy|
This study investigated the effect of using CCC strategy for teaching spelling on the ninth graders' acquisition of spelling. It also examined the long-term effect of the strategy on the retention of the correct spelling. Furthermore, the students' attitudes towards the strategy was investigated. The sample of the study consisted of (60) nine grade male students divided into two groups; an experimental group and a control group. Both groups have (30)students each. The groups were purposively chosen from Deir El Balah Prep. "B" Boys' School that is an UNRWA school located in the Middle Governorate in the Gaza Strip. The two groups were equivalent in their previous learning, achievement in English language in general and achievement in spelling in particular. The study attempted the experimental approach where there were two groups of ninth graders; an experimental group and a control one. To investigate the effect of using CCC strategy on ninth graders' acquisition and retention of spelling, CCC strategy was used in teaching the students of the experimental group while the traditional method was used with the control group students. To collect data and achieve the goal of the study, the researcher used two tools, pre -post and retention test to measure the effectiveness of CCC strategy and a social validity questionnaire to assess the students' attitudes towards the strategy. The results of this study confirmed the effectiveness of CCC strategy. The findings revealed that there were significant differences between the mean scores attained by the experimental group and those by the control group in the post-test and retention test in favor of the experimental group. The results of the social validity questionnaire indicated that almost all students (96.22 %) showed satisfaction with CCC strategy, enjoyed using it, and felt like they were better spellers after having used the strategy. They also indicated that they thought the strategy was easy to use and that they would use it in the future when learning spelling.
