Choosing a Handwriting Scheme

'Choosing a Handwriting Scheme' is designed to help schools/teachers choose the most appropriate handwriting scheme for their pupils. The content of each available handwriting scheme is summarised, along with representative worksheets and a short comment, so that teachers can judge for themselves which scheme(s) will best suit their needs. This 2013 edition is updated from 'Which Handwriting Scheme?' and is available as a downloadable pdf and printed copy.

 

Many schools deciding to establish or alter the style of handwriting to teach their students consider whether or not to purchase a published scheme. These vary greatly in content, style and cost and it is often takes much time to research what best suits the needs of a particular school.

'Choosing a Handwriting Scheme'  is intended to assist this choice by summarising some of the considerations necessary when choosing a scheme providing a résumé of the content of most schemes. Sample pages are reproduced so that a teacher can get the 'flavour' of the scheme.

The content of each available handwriting scheme is summarised, along with representative worksheets and a short comment, so that teachers can judge for themselves which scheme(s) will best suit their needs.
