Preparing you to teach Cursive

This course is designed to teach you how to teach handwriting.  We go over many issues with cursive, its benefits, its problems, and ideas for creating a successful learning adventure for students of all ages.  Upon completion of this course, demonstration of proper pencil grip, and completion of the examination, you will earn your Certificate as a Certified Cursive Coach.

Make Your Selection of Age-related Workbooks

In addition to your teacher's manual, you will receive a workbook that you will use.   When you register, select your preferred age group to teach handwriting.  That will allow us to send you the correct books and workbooks to meet your needs.

All teaching materials will be supplied for this course.  In order to get materials to you in time in the continental USA, the deadline for registration is May 6th, 2017.  For participants outside the continental USA, the deadline for registration is April 30th to accommodate additional mailing time for the books/materials to reach you!

Workbooks K-4th grade

   The Early Education selection provides the Teaching Guide plus two workbooks: for grades K-2 and 2-4.  These offer the basic shapes, letter forms and connections for the developing child.

We will review all the information needed to address children's learning such as proper pencil grip, posture, page orientation, left handers, and more.

Workbooks for Late Childhood through Adult Education

Because the late learning student or adults may have picked up some difficult to bad habits, we address these issues and help you to teach them correct handwriting habits. 

The suppiles provided include a more mature workbook for the student, as well as the extensive Teaching Guide for this course.

The most difficult issue to overcome is pencil grip.  We will discuss the pen grip, posture, page orientation, learning issues, left handers, and more.
