Evaluation, Handwriting, and Its Importance.
Although it is a skill that is often ignored, handwriting is an important aspect of education, especially at the elementary school level. Word processors are not always available, and there is frequently a need to write something that others must read. Students should receive instruction in specific handwriting problems, and it is best if learners practice handwriting skills in functional writing, rather than simply practicing handwriting skills in isolated practice. Some students, however, may need intensive practice so that what they write can be read with ease. (SLD)
