    I am not a teacher, I have a B.A. in Communications and help teach an ESL class

    CHIMP is a mnemonic device for learning spelling:

    CH = Chunk = break the words into chunks of sounds (syllables)
    I = Investigate = explore the meaning of the word and how it (or its parts) might relate to other words
    M = Memory screen = close your eyes and imagine the "chunks" on a screen and spell the word forward and backward
    P = Practice = write the word at least three times speaking the "chunks" out loud as they are written (synchronizing voice with hand movements)
