Education Specialist Parents and teachers should demand good handwriting from students right from the begin- |ning of the school year. Handwriting is an important skill in communication. If others cannot accurately read an individual's writing, the^ thinking behind it are valueless. Proper handwriting is a skill which can be learned by the average student. It requires instruction, effort, and practice. It does not develop automatically as a child grows up. He has to be taught. The ability to control movements necessary for regular writing (cursive) usually develops toward the end of the second grade or the beginning of the third - grade. Therefore, most schools teach a form of printing (manuscript) in the earlier grades. Some problems with poor handwriting may be caused by pushing a child to learn writing before he-has the physical and mental ability. The result is frustration and poor I habits which are particularly difficult to correct. The first step is the develop­ ment of an understanding of the Importance of a clear, neat handwriting. Perhaps this can be demonstrated by showing a child good and poor handwriting. This should be followed by a comparison explaining the value of good handwriting. A more dramatic example might be to leave the child an important note which he is unable to read because of poor handwriting. Parents can help by demanding good handwriting. Anything which is difficult to read or sloppy is not acceptable. In order to avoid confusion, parents should check with the teacher on the method and form of letters which are taught in the school. There are several acceptable. -ways to make particular letters. It is important to be consistant in using only one method. Practice is a necessity. One does not become an accomplished athlete without extensive practice. The same is true of handwriting, which is also a physical skill. The school provides many opportunities for practice. Parents can help by providing additional opportune-' ties such as making lists and writing to relatives and friends.
