SA6 - Has Handwriting Become An Instructional Dinosaur? Handwriting May Be More Important Than You Think!


Nov 9, 2019 10:00am ‐ Nov 9, 2019 11:30am

Standard: $20.00

Description

Manuscript, cursive, and keyboarding have advantages at different ages. Handwriting involves cognitive and motor skills—and influences reading, written expression, and critical thinking. Sequential hand movements activate brain regions associated with thinking, working memory, and language. A note-taking study showed better comprehension and retention for handwriters. Elementary students composing by hand wrote faster longer pieces. Research demonstrates effectiveness of explicit, integrated, handwriting instruction from kindergarten to high school.
