Questions for Research on Handwriting.
Horn, Ernest
Elementary School Journal, v62 n6 p304-12 Mar 1962
Problems in handwriting research are related either to the total design of classroom instruction or to specific factors (e.g., position, letter formation). Problems of general design to be researched are the relation of handwriting practice to a student's general writing, identification of the most productive methods of practicing writing problems in written composition, methods for teaching certain concepts involved in good writing, techniques to motivate students, and the most effective sequence for teaching handwriting. Specific topics that need to be researched are the effects of poor writing in business transactions, the controlling purpose in teaching handwriting, the desirability of an individual style, student handicaps related to handwriting deficiencies, the possible deterioration of handwriting in recent years, teaching legible numerals, manuscript writings in relation to cursive writing, the most effective form of writing, the validity of current writing information, the relevance of data from psychological research, individual differences in writing, left-handedness, illegibility of improperly joined letters, writing speed, personality factors affecting handwriting, graphology, equipment selection, achievement evaluation, teacher preparation, teacher attitudes, and teacher supervision.
