Handwriting and the Student.
Ediger, Marlow
Missouri English Bulletin, v26 n4 p13-16 Oct 1969
The importance of tidy, legible handwriting which effectively communicates ideas may be made evident to students through the use of purposeful, realistic writing situations. The writing of letters, diaries, poems, and invitations may provide a beneficial use of time and motivate students to improve their handwriting. The teacher can develop in them an awareness of the kinds of errors which result in illegibility by keeping personal folders in which each student measures his own progress, by allowing opportunities for the class to study individual examples of writing, by utilizing reputable handwriting booklets as models, and by pacing lessons with regard to the age and attention span of the group.
