Handwriting Resource Book, Grades 1-7.
British Columbia Dept. of Education, Victoria. Curriculum Development Branch.
Designed for use by both the elementary and the secondary school teacher, this resource book provides information and guidance on the teaching of printing and cursive writing skills. In the first part of the book, which deals with preparation, the physical requirements of handwriting are discussed and program planning suggestions offered. The second part concerns handwriting objectives and activities and focuses on the method whereby a student acquires and develops strong handwriting skills. The stages outlined take the student from readiness activities to printing, and from printing to refined cursive writing. The third part sets out some specific printed and cursive letter models, together with suggestions on how students can best be taught to imitate them, while the fourth part deals with the preparation and teaching of a handwriting lesson. This section identifies four distinct types of handwriting lesson, discusses the structural components of a lesson plan, and provides a chart containing suggestions for preparatory activities. It also includes sample lesson plans (one for each type of lesson). The fifth part covers evaluation and remediation and offers advice on how to isolate handwriting defects and take remedial measures. A list of resource materials and a bibliography are included.
