Manuscript Writing after the Primary Grades.
Bell, Mary Elizabeth
Education, v89 n1 p81-3 Sep-Oct 1968
The many everyday needs for manuscript writing--signs, maps, graphs, and posters--and the fact that it retains its legibility better than does cursive writing suggest the need for the continued use of manuscript beyond grades 1 and 2. Also, manuscript writing is preferable to cursive writing for children with poor coordination or spelling problems, for slow learners, and for left-handed children. Classroom opportunities for the practice of manuscript writing above third grade should be provided, and parents should be encouraged to understand its value and to help their children write correctly.
