GETTING READY TO WRITE

This Slingerland class is designed for any teacher responsible for the initial teaching of penmanship skills to younger children (manuscript and cursive) or to older students who have not established penmanship proficiency in at least one script.  Although each person ultimately develops an individual style of writing, this class will show teachers how to make legible writing possible for all students.  Class participants will actively apply the Slingerland multisensory techniques throughout  the class in guided practice sessions.  In this 12.5 hour Slingerland Short Class, participants will discover the Slingerland Instructional Techniques for:

  • Teaching manuscript and cursive handwriting using the Slingerland┬« Approach
  • Providing your students with the tools for automatic letter recall
  • Make legible handwriting a reality for ALL students

The Slingerland Short Classes focus on specific components of the comprehensive training. They provide practical tools for teachers, parents, or paraprofessionals who work with children who need a multisensory approach to learning. No practicum is included with the short class.
