Students are expected to copy assignments from the board, take notes and write test answers – legibly.
Because students are graded on written output, not on what they might know, difficulty in any of these areas impacts
achievement. Furthermore, because handwriting is visible, students compare the quality of their handwriting to that of
their peers. Students with strong academic potential but poor handwriting frequently perceive themselves as low achievers.
A sample of a person's writing can be compared to that of a written document to determine and authenticate the written document's
writer; if the writing styles match, it is likely that one person wrote both documents.
Your child will be taken on a fun filled adventure with our hero, Captain Pencil, as he discovers the many handwriting secrets.
