Handwriting Showdown

Printed in Practical Homeschooling #9, 1995.

Pin It


Banging away at a keyboard just isn’t the same as picking up a pen. Even if you can type 100 words per minute, you will still need to write by hand.

When that happens, it’s still true that people judge you by your handwriting.

With all that in mind, we have arranged for you to see samples (below) of some of the most popular handwriting styles taught in today’s homeschools, both manuscript & cursive.

Whether your child needs special help learning to form letters, or you long to develop an artistically beautiful style, there’s something here for you!
