Instruction in Handwriting in Ontario Schools.
Currie, A. Blaine
Review and Evaluation Bulletins, v2 n2 1981
The question and answer format of this booklet presents 35 questions about handwriting most often asked by teachers and parents. The answers that follow each question are derived from an earlier study of handwriting instruction undertaken in Ontario, Canada, schools. The questions in the first section of the booklet deal with current handwriting instruction practices in Ontario schools and provide a general view of how handwriting should be taught in the elementary schools. The questions in the second section consider handwriting instruction for preschool and kindergarten children. The third section presents ideas for printing instruction in grades one and two, while section four deals with handwriting instruction in grades three through six. Section five considers ways to evaluate students' handwriting, and section six suggests ways for improving handwriting instruction for left-handed students and children with learning disabilities. The final question considers possible future directions for handwriting instruction in Ontario schools. (HOD)
