Handwriting is a lost art. While many curriculums and standards do not include explicit handwriting practice, research has shown that handwriting instruction benefits the reading circuits in the brain. This course will explore the history of writing, discuss the research behind the importance of explicit practice, and provide activities and strategies to learn those letters! (Print and cursive will be discussed).
This course will satisfy 6 hours of coursework at the Certified Level of certification with the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators.
