Functional Handwriting Manual.
Metzger, Louise; Lehotsky, Rutheda R.
An inservice project to review the functional handwriting being taught in the Williamsport, Pennsylvania, school district produced a handwriting manual that provides teachers and students with models of letter forms and instructional exercises leading to the development of an individualized style of handwriting. The manual describes student objectives for learning functional handwriting and the writing implements and paper necessary to teach this particular kind of writing. A major portion of the manual presents a developmental sequence for teaching functional handwriting that leads to writing signatures. Other sample lessons and instructional suggestions are presented, along with an extensive selection of supplementary materials that includes quotations, poetry, and sample mimeograph pages. (AEA)
