This unit is designed to introduce secondary or post-secondary students to the ancient art of Chinese calligraphy through step-by-step instructions on writing Chinese characters. Because each character is made up of a series of single brush strokes, it is believed that if students learn to recognize these as components of completed characters, the written Chinese language will become less forbidding. It also is hoped that the unit will encourage students to experience the rhythm and sense of design in Chinese writing, thereby bringing an aesthetic dimension to their understanding of Chinese language.
