Teaching Children Handwriting: Historical, Developmental, and Practical Aspects of Writing
Teaching Children Handwriting is not just another book about teaching block printing and cursive script. It is a reference for the whole language-arts curriculum in the first three grades and beyond. It begins with the young child’s orientation in space and presents written language in the context of the development of human consciousness.
Offering practical suggestions for activities, posture, choice of writing instruments, and much more, Audrey McAllen also provides helpful insights into learning difficulties that can be observed through a child’s writing and offers guidance and encouragement.
Teaching Children Handwriting is a treasure and invaluable resource for teachers, homeschooling parents, and all who love the written word.
