Synopsis: Penny Gardner's new book is just what parents and teachers using the Charlotte Mason Approach to Education have been waiting for! It relates what Charlotte Mason said about italic handwriting and copy work, or transcription, and makes it easy to teach and use in the home and classroom.
From the introduction to Italics, Beautiful Handwriting for Children:
Charlotte Mason, a British educator who lived from 1842-1923, recommended teaching children Italic handwriting. She wrote: "Some years ago I heard of a lady who was elaborating, by means of the study of old Italian and other manuscripts, a 'system of beautiful handwriting' which could be taught to children. [This is] a style of writing which is pleasant to acquire because it is beautiful to behold. It is surprising how quickly young children, even those already confirmed in 'ugly' writing, take to this 'new handwriting.'" (Home Education, p. 235-236)
Italic handwriting instruction within a 'Charlotte Mason' framework.
Suggestions for writing-readiness activities.
Overview of steps in teaching handwriting to children.
May be used at all grade levels—elementary through high school.
Lessons and practice in Basic Italics and Cursive Italics.
Articles on copy work.
Models in handwritten basic and cursive italics for children to copy.
Quotes to transcribe into basic or cursive italics.
Variations on copy work--ideas to make it more challenging and instructive.
48-page consumable workbook.
From the Author: Charlotte Mason would have us teach the child basic italics (printing) then use meaningful copy work to practice. Later the students learn cursive italics and use that with their copy work. Students do not need a workbook for every elementary grade. This one workbook is all they need.
