Presentation on Good Handwriting

Presentation on Good Handwriting


hello learners previously we discussed
about writing and now I will give you some suggestions for good handwriting
what is good handwriting how it helps a person to become better writer these all
things will be explained in this presentation the men who invented and
perfected writing were great linguistics and it was they who created thing
mistakes Miller said this writing has been with us for several thousand years
and nowadays is more important than ever having spread steadily over the
centuries from clay tablets to computer chips it is poised for further dramatic
advances although hundreds of millions of people are still unable to read and
write humanity relies on writing to an
unprecedented extent it is quite possible that today more communication
takes place in the written than in the Orland there is no objective measure but
if there were any doubts the internet explosion has laid to rest the idea that
for the human race at large writing is only a minor form of communication
writing not only offers ways of reclaiming the past but is a critical
skill for shaping the future Matthew said handwriting is really brain writing
and you can’t fool your brain no matter how hard you try in present scenario it
has been seen that people say now we have computers why worry about
handwriting but the initial learning academic success and overall student
confidence is directly related to handwriting scientific tests conducted
have reestablished the role of hen writing in activating a
large section of brain hands have unique relationship with the brain when it
comes to compositing thoughts and ideas writing also provides a mean
to practice hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills and some experts even
suggest a link between handwriting and learning ability writing his science
involved in it experts called handwriting s brain writing when you
think of writing something the process starts your brain forms
shapes that is letters then letters are added to make words then words form
sentences with the help of brain brain gives instruction to hand and hand picks
a pen and you write handwriting is the mirror of the state of the mind of the
writer and the personality handwriting is a language by hand basically now we
will discuss about characteristics of good handwriting first one is legibility
handwriting should be legible and easy to read in legible handwriting creates a
very bad impression on the readers Bell says illegible handwriting in a young
man or woman is a sign of untidy and careless mind handwriting should be
written in a bold and simple manner extra strokes and curves should be
avoided then comes distinctiveness it means each letter should have a
characteristic form of its own it should be clearly and carefully written the
letters should not be distorted and overlapped the bigness should not be
encouraged to write code words like and they should write each letter
distinctively this adds Beauty to handwriting next is spacing spacing in
writing is an important feature the letter in a word the word inner line and
the lines in a page should not be crowded too closely together a
harmonious spacing of letters words and lines is necessary next is simplicity
lattice should be simple bold and free from all extravagant strokes and
flourish a simple handwriting in which letters
have no unnecessary parts tails or loops is always easy to read
then comes size the size of words should be proper and moderate it should not be
neither too long not too small the letters should have due proportion
to one another then comes letter style there can be three different type of
styles of letters first one is slanting towards the left vertical slanting
towards the right it is generally noted that boys adopt
the third style whereas the girls adopt the first style and the second style is
common among both pitcher can guide the students not to mix up the styles as it
will give a shabby look to writing so vertical style is preferable then
uniformity there should be uniformity in handwriting one may select any style of
writing but it should be uniform in size spacing and alignment now we will
discuss about speed good handwriting also requires a general and responsible
speed while writing one should not feel labored or burdened regarding speed
frisbee opens the writing should not be labored but done at a reasonable speed
in the beginning the students may write slowly but gradually they should develop
the habit of writing at a reasonable speed adjustment between writing and
thinking this is another characteristic of good handwriting it implies that
there should be no omission of words and phrases due to quick thinking in fast
writing writing is a difficult art which needs practice as well as great
attention French also suggested that training in writing should begin with
training in muscular control through fairly large movement using fingers in
tray of sand or chalk or brown paper the movement should include drawing of lines
of various lengths and direction half-circles strokes etc then comes
elements of good handwriting now we will discuss about which are the elements of
a good handwriting the composition of good handwriting is not at all complex
basically good handwriting gives two main impressions first is what its
appearance tells and second is what it takes to form that appearance good
handwriting is like a beauty it catches you as soon as you experience its
influence finally the goal of handwriting is to communicate well if
you are not with it you stay uncommunicative we can divide the
elements of good handwriting under two sections overall appearance and
formation of overall appearance now we will discuss about overall appearance
it’s the feeling which our particular handwriting gives you can take it the
domain of both a writer and a reader if you can’t write well the others can’t
read what you have written we are all writers cum readers so it is very
important for us to consider both the perspectives while writing if the
handwriting settles easily and effectively in the flow of a writer as
well as in the mind of a reader it is good now we will discuss about
distinguished characteristics of overall handwriting appearance first one is
fluency is your handwriting capable enough to express itself with hesitation
if it is you are good with it good handwriting always gives you a constant
flow whether you are writing or reading the flow misses its naturalness if it
stops you for a while because it is not written or readable in the manner in
which you have started with take an example of a ladder on even steps will
not let you climb it easily it would give you a very odd feeling
then comes readability readability is the quality of Henry
thing that makes it easy to read and understand it is the foremost
requirement among all its characteristics
no readability no understanding what you have written is just a waste it doesn’t
come without accuracy and that should be there in every part of handwritten text
handwriting legibility stems out of a clear and clean relationship between
letters situation oriented basically this characteristic reflects the
personality of the writer think about the reader when you write for example a
person’s daughter is studying in the fifth grade and he is away from home and
wants to send a letter to wish her good luck for her examination the letter
can’t work out if it is it has the same tone which one uses in the business life
one has to write it according to the reader and the occasion it doesn’t mean
that he needs to change his in writing he only needs to tune it to the
situation then interest if the writing is made under compulsion it can be
easily noticed good handwriting shows presence of one’s interest in the
subject if a person writes in a hurry and not interested in something will
miss that flavor of penmanship write something and give it to a reader
definitely the reader can make out the concern for it
remember he could be equally uninterested in it but gets interested
by the power of one’s writing you start always matches your end if you write
with equal interest all the time writing is an inherent ability also good
handwriting constantly looks like an inherent ability it doesn’t matter how
much one has practiced for it important is that it should look very natural one
can’t always pay special attention to make the handwriting good if it is good
it forever when it is like that one is
always naturally fast in reading and writing and it becomes integral part of
one’s personality next characteristic is pleasing experience good handwriting is
a pleasure inducer a person enjoys it throughout its course whether he or she
is writing or reading this is what the essence of handwriting is it works like
leisure where one doesn’t get chance to feel tired easily this is one of the
finest factories of handwriting in the situation when your mind doesn’t support
you it motivates your mind to write more as your hand still wants to move on
coordination between senses and mind you always feel displeased when your senses
and mind behave differently and when they take their own routes that reduces
the concentration and one fails to enjoy the subject on which one is working on
after all how could a person concentrate when his or her senses acknowledge one
thing and the mind thinks about the other good handwriting always
establishes balance between the senses and the mind your senses follow your
mind because it holds that liking to understand the need of your senses
handwriting can’t catch your mind unless your senses are caught first it is good
when it makes senses and mind work together next is first impression a
glance is enough to notice good handwriting
after that glance you start reading when we look at it we move rapidly from one
part to another this is a decisive factor for our liking or disliking if
the first impression is positive your handwriting is appealing it has no
second or last impression and writing attracts impression only once if the
first impression speaks favorably for you your
writing is good next characteristic is self-reliant when this is the case one
doesn’t take initiative for little things on the other hand if a person is
good with his or her in writing doesn’t have to wait for anyone one can write
what when and how one wants sometimes we need someone to work on our behalf
the reason could be many but the most prominent one is that the person is not
confident about his or her propensity for that work handwriting is no
different from this fact next characteristic is of overall appearance
physical comfort good handwriting is always delight for hand as well as eyes
delight for hand because primarily it makes one write for eyes one reads
because of them if eyes are not comfortable
the handwriting lacks that quality of being good they are not only the parts
used for writing but the whole body someway helps in writing good
handwriting comes of a relaxed state of the body
it doesn’t demand any special effort or attention then formation of overall
appearance formation of overall appearance exists when you work on
handwriting basics this section gives you significant information about them
and how they work in combination some of the basic terms and techniques that you
need to understand and practice for handwriting are given here you may refer
to the figures in the next few pages for better understanding first is capital
letter capital letter means the larger version of any letter small letter the
smaller version of any letter stem the main vertical stroke in Elector arc a
part of a small letter that emerges out of its stem ascender the stroke of a
small letter that goes up from the mean line
descendant the lower part of a small letter that goes below the baseline
bowel it is curved path with both the ends merge in a stem of a letter then
lines of writing a cinder line capital line mean line base line and the center
line then comes flourish it is an additional stroke that you give to add
on a letter then comes draw stroke a horizontal stroke which you see touching
the stem then comes search a small pen stroke at the beginning or at the end of
a stroke like a hairline of or a hook slant the angle that stem makes on its
right or left side body the main part of a letter between mean line and baseline
loop loop means the dos shape which is either formed white finishing the letter
or beginning it space the gap between letters words or lines of writing now we
will discuss about ratio of a sender and the sender a sender and the sender are
very important to group any letter that right symmetry too short and too long
turn out to be a burial to reading and writing take an example of too short a
sender it can make be giving impression of a and H resembling and in case it is
excessive long upper and lower lines appear cluttered that obstructs you
reading it comfortably check the gaps between letters if the gaps are uneven
they make a word look split they don’t like the word appear one what in case
they are too far from each other they give the impression of being rambling
and lacking Koreans then spacing between words more or less space between words
than the usual gives the lines awkward appearance reading them is not an easy
task right space between words is one the
can fit letter O in it the space should be restricted to its dimension
throughout writing although we can take little more space after punctuation
particularly in case of a full stop now spacing between lines means less
space between lines gives them characteristic of a sender hanging to
the sender when the space is more it seems you are writing for poster slant
or no slant any slant can work no matter it is left or right if your writing has
rhythm then no slant can also work whatever slant you opt for your
handwriting you should always stick to it the most appropriate slant is two
words right because of a simple reason that will write from left to right so
the slant should move forward the backward slant hampers pace of writing
the best slant is something between 5 to 10 degrees at shaped letters we write in
italics mostly it is easy to form letters in italics as a little slope
while moving forward helps us write fast making straight oval is not effortless
it’s a kind of inconvenience for writing flow better is we should bring
elliptical shape in practice generally of letters make your letters identical
in their origin that comes when you maintain the same slant size curve shape
spacing etc handwriting is not an experiment that you can change it for
every leg unless you are practicing the making of letters take an example in a
group of Indians if there is one American a glance is sufficient to
distinguish him in the group then texture of text heavy uneven or light
text is not easy to read so quality of text that you write is very important it
is very important in making your writing readable
sometimes dense writing texture is preferred for its attractiveness but it
should not be so dense that you start feeling it an abstraction a combination
of heavy uneven and light words always make a textbook distorted or it can give
the impression that your writing instrument was overflowing with writing
dots and cross strokes dots are needed for the letter like I and J let us like
F and P need cross strokes the dot should be placed exactly over the stem
while the stroke needs to cross the stem maintaining clarity of its existence
you can’t ignore and position them in accurately if you do that you would only
make your writing difficult enough to be ripped join when it comes naturally you
can write a word in two different ways one way is that you can connect the
letters in a word the other way is you leave them unconnected we join the
letters because we want to maintain the speed writing in which letters are not
connected is more heartfelt it gives better clarity and appearance when you
don’t join a letter it’s beginning and finished have nothing to do with the
other letters now letter size the size of a letter should not block the way of
writing and reading flow if it is too small it is an obstruction for reading
in case it is too big it looks awkward and takes unnecessary space of the page
now you want to know what is the right size of a letter well one that has about
three millimeter height in appropriate for convenient writing and reading with
this size you can write 10 words in a line
then comes alignment initially without lines words can slip out of alignment
the time you develop sense different lines of writing you start
writing in a straight line or incorrect relative positions so understand what
the line means for a straight flow then comes layout how could you write doesn’t
give fine impression unless you put it right take care about the margins there
shouldn’t be uneven and insufficient margins are not just vacant space on a
paper but they are more to protect text from being appeared in such a way that
it gets unnoticed if margins are not proper text looks either scattered or
cluttered the space around the house and its boundary makes it a perfect place to
live layout is that for any text formation of
letter correct formation of letter is essential for readability and speed of
writing in fact it is the most important of all writing requirements one letter
can be formed in different ways or we can say every hand is different for a
same letter letter formation has many stages it begins with initiating the
stroke then moving it up or down after that merging it into the stem next is
giving it a joining hook variations are there in forming the same letter with
these moves but the basic flow and direction is generally common for a
particular letter why teach handwriting the reason is that students need a
legible fluent style of handwriting to fully participate in writing and writing
fluency predicts how much and how well children write attention to motor skills
strains students processing capacity that could be used for higher order
skills keeping up with own thoughts planning content generation revisions
etc over time children may meaning other writing process avoid writing or
believe they cannot write handwriting accounts for how writing is evaluated
note-taking and adult use are still necessary many problems can be prevented
by early training young children in kindergarten and early grades should
learn to form letters correctively kinesthetic memory is powerful and
incorrect habits are very difficult to eradicate
now teaching approaches let’s have a quick look direct instructions practice
should be fun yet organized build a positive relationship with the child
take it at a relaxed speed and adapt according to the child needs keep actual
handwriting sessions short and sweet can be from 5 minutes to 20 minutes do live
demonstration and encourage imitation teach directionality concepts
multi-sensory approach consistency and repetition supervision to develop good
habits opportunities for student self-evaluation circle their own best
letter now we will discuss about handwriting in personality some teachers
believe that bad handwriting leads to defects in personality therefore they
often put children to the boring task of writing letters neatly over and over
again teachers need to understand that each activity is intended for improving
handwriting are difficult tedious and completely unproductive improving
handwriting doesn’t bring about improvement in personality since
handwriting doesn’t influence personality efforts to improve
personality are likely to result in making children disinterested in writing
the focus should be on activities which make writing meaningful and therefore an
interesting activity remember your handwriting is unique to
you it is part of your personality make it your own thanks
