Category Description for Italic Handwriting (Getty-Dubay):

Mom's horrible handwriting inspired us to use an italic handwriting program with our kids. It's difficult not to produce at least legible writing in Italics. Another plus is that manuscript flows into cursive - letters don't completely change, they just join. Not only does this seem sensible to us, but the many compliments the children have received on their handwriting have further encouraged us in this approach. (Children begin moving into cursive writing in Level C.) The last level gets into calligraphy toward the end. From there, follow up with a good calligraphy book for Jr. High/High School and continue handwriting as an art form! Instruction Manual applies to all levels.

Goes with the workbooks—just in case my son needs more direction.

I wanted to be better equipped to teach my children the Italic handwriting style. The workbooks are excellent, my daughter's writing looks very nice and she doesn't complain about handwriting any more.

Teaching my children handwriting, Italic is the preferred method for many going forward where traditional cursive is almost not even taught in the public school.

Do I need this manual to teach GD italic writing or are the student books sufficient?
User on Aug 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: While there is certainly useful information in this guide, I think you can easily get away with teaching without it. I did a quick scan through the guide and found it fine to just teach from the student manual.
Is this manual necessary for teaching GD italic writing or can I get by with just the student books?
A shopper on Aug 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The manual is really wonderful for teaching you *how* to teach italic. It shows you what to look for in your child's posture, grip and written work, and shows you how to correct issues. It is also full of ideas for fun activities to teach handwriting. It has reproducible lined paper and other resources. So, theoretically, you could just use the workbooks, and as long as your child is an excellent observer and can mimic the workbook, you wouldn't have any problems. But the manual will give you a much better understanding of how to teach italic and how to recognize and correct any handwriting/posture issues before they become a big deal. The manual is something that I read when my first child was learning italic, then kept on the shelf as a reference for all my other children as they began learning italic.

In my pre-kid years I was a serious calligrapher In calligraphy circles I always heard the lament that children ought to be taught italic handwriting in schools because the letterforms are strong and legibility holds up well even when written quickly Also printed italic forms segue simply and easily into their cursive counterparts There are no confusing loopy cursive letters to learn with this method Now I'm homeschooling my kids and there was never any question which handwriting method I would use I'm very pleased with this Italic Handwriting Series I even used it myself once upon a time to clean up my own handwriting Cursive is begun about halfway through Book C At the end of the final book in the series calligraphy is even introduced
