Whether you're teaching novice writers, older children or adults, you'll benefit from Julie Bennett's enthusiasm and expertise. She presents handwriting as both an art and a science. Either way, it can be mastered. Julie covers all bases: teaching, improving and trouble shooting handwriting. Starting with the basics - seating, posture, paper and writing implements - she then fixes the goal posts with a handwriting checklist. This is the reference point for remedying a range of common problems (eg uneven spacing between words and letters or inconsistent slope and slant) using Julie'smulti-sensory 'Key Notes' method. A chapter on teaching beginner writers moves through the stages of writing from pre-literate to fluency, and a section on solving handwriting problems (eg for left-handers or those with dysgraphia or arthritis) is followed by a treasure trove of resources: schemes, aids,software, websites and books.
