Read about
From the Stanford Hanna Study of 1966; this book explains the English orthography system (spelling) to adults.  It is organized by phonograms that are close to the "Orton" phonograms used in this program; this makes the book very handy for adding additional words to the spelling-vocabulary lists; teaching the background for the spelling patterns, etc. 
Teachers use this text to find all the answers for both themselves and their curious and/or older students.  Also extremely helpful for adult and/or  ESL students.
