Recommended for any student grade three through adult who wants to learn a classic form of cursive, this publication provides thorough step-by-step instruction and practice in the art of penmanship. Students learn the seven Spencerian principles, proper pen positioning, the correct finger and arm movements, the proper stroke patterns that form each letter, as well as the correct spacing between letters and words.

My very sloppy high schooler was required to take this course this year by me. His writing is finally legible, and he is actually trying to write neat. I’m buying this for the next three kids now. They are already neat writers, so I’m excited to see the beautiful writing they will have by the end of the year.
