Ten Words to Stop Mis-spelling

Just found this great poster (available for $13.95.) featuring ten words that are classically mis-spelled, along with strategies to help avoid the typical pitfalls.  On the poster are classic stumblers like “affect” vs. “effect”, “a lot”, “loose” vs. “lose”, and “weird” (not “wierd”).  Whew, did I ever recognize myself in that poster.  But what I really love about it is that the clever cartoons on the poster give you a handy (and memorable!) way to remember the rule.  What a great example of using visualizations to guide and reinforce the learning.
