Excerpt from The Handwriting Movement: A Study of the Motor Factors of Excellence in Penmanship, an Investigation Carried on With the Aid of a Subsidy by the General Education Board

Three phases of the writing activity were examined in the present study. The first was the position of the hand and arm, including the grasp of the penholder. Five aspects of hand position were studied. The good and poor writers were classified under each of these aspects, and statistics were compiled in order to determine what types of posi tion are more common among good than among poor writers. Finally practical rules for guidance In teaching hand position were derived.

The second phase that was studied was the writing movement in its gross aspect, which is usually designated by the terms finger move ment, hand movement, and arm movement. The varieties of movement were classified under four heads. The purpose was to com pare the various writers in what may be called the composition of the movement. The movement as a whole may be composed of varying proportions of finger movement, hand movement, wrist movement, and arm movement. Some varieties are more common among good writers and others are more common among poor writers.
