Description

Class Experience

Penmanship Pals appeals to a wide variety of learners who enroll in the course with unique goals. The course is popular among learners who struggle to achieve legible handwriting and, therefore, usually dread having to practice. It is also an enjoyable, creative outlet for young artists who gain much satisfaction from forming letters and punctuation symbols.

For a student's handwriting skills to improve, practice is required. Extra, focused work is often essential for learners with dysgraphia or other fine motor skills challenges, those of whom are left-handed, and those whose training in cursive has been sporadic. Handwriting exercise for these students can also be very frustrating and tedious and, therefore, it is difficult to find the motivation to hone their skills.

The Penmanship Pals curriculum provides a variety of handwriting activities with the hope that each student will find some or most of the topics of interest. For example, if a learner is not excited about the horse breeds or folk song lessons; perhaps they will enjoy the Olympic sports or mirror letter handwriting activities. Great care has been taken to make handwriting practice fun so that students are more likely to practice often and for longer periods of time and so that all students – whether handwriting challenged or budding calligraphy artist – will be inspired.
When I attended elementary school in the 1970s, neat, legible, print and cursive handwriting was an important part of our education. I received good grades then and compliments throughout my life on my beautiful penmanship. In recent years, I’ve also dabbled in hand lettering and calligraphy art and have participated in events such as The Graceful Envelope Contest and IAMPETHvirtual2021.  I am a member of IAMPETH (International Association of Master Penmen, Engrossers and Teachers of Handwriting).

I have taught over 100 sections of Tails and Curls: The Art of Cursive Handwriting and Penmanship Pals: Handwriting and Fine Motor Skills Practice. Your learners will find me to be patient, cheerful, and fun.

Learners will need a pen or pencil and some paper. There are no other requirements for supplies; however, I recommend the following: ruled paper (preferably ½” ruled, or larger) ballpoint or gel pen It would also be nice to have basic art supplies handy to frame class projects for display at home or to create greeting cards and gifts using class projects.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
There will be no formal assessment.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
