A CHALLENGE AND A JOY
By Nan Jay Barchowsky
Handwriting is a subject
many of us often tend
to take for granted. We
teach a basic alphabet, and
as long as our student’s
handwriting is legible,
we don’t make good handwriting a priority.
However, handwriting is a critical component
of communication. Let’s accept the challenge
and enjoy the results of teaching our students
a lasting handwriting skill, whereby legibility
will flow at age-appropriate speed.
