THE DEVELOPMENT OF A PROGRAMED COURSE OF STUDY IN MANUSCRIPT AND CURSIVE HANDWRITING FOR USE IN TEACHER EDUCATION.
PLATTOR, EMMA E.
THE PURPOSE OF THE PROJECT WAS TO DEVELOP PROGRAMED MATERIALS FOR HANDWRITING INSTRUCTION AND TO EVALUATE THEIR EFFECTIVENESS. COLLEGE STUDENTS FROM TWO UNIVERSITIES WERE ASSIGNED TO FOUR GROUPS--TWO EXPERIMENTAL, ONE COMPARATIVE, AND ONE CONTROL. THESE GROUPS RECEIVED DIFFERENT INSTRUCTIONAL TREATMENTS. DATA WERE OBTAINED BY PRE- AND POST-TEST PROCEDURES AND BY VARIOUS RATING TECHNIQUES. PROGRAMED MATERIALS WERE FOUND EFFECTIVE IN INCREASING THE ABILITY OF PRESERVICE TEACHERS TO PROVIDE ELEMENTARY INSTRUCTION IN HANDWRITING, AND IN PROVIDING HANDWRITING MODELS FOR BOTH MANUSCRIPT AND CURSIVE STYLES. FURTHER RESEARCH WAS RECOMMENDED TO INVESTIGATE THE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN PROGRAM COMPLETION TIME AND KNOWLEDGE OF EDUCATIONAL METHODOLOGY. (RS)
