A handwriting expert says students are leaving school with poor handwriting that stays with them through life because the most common school systems are not teaching students to draw letters and numbers effectively.

The handwriting practice sheets in use in most public and private schools to teach children to write aren’t working according to expert D. Chance DeBoe because the three lines on those sheets don’t help students in working out where curved letters start and finish.
This lack of understanding on where to start and finish curved letters results in both teachers and students guessing which gives poor results and leads to unnecessary frustration and failure.
Current teaching also has students learning many of the most difficult letters in the alphabet first instead of starting with letters that are easier to master and building skills and success from there.
Using a specially designed 5 line printing practice sheet takes the guess work out of making the more difficult letters in the upper and lower case alphabet.
By coupling that with a progressive learning system where the alphabet is categorised into eleven progressive directional groups from easiest to hardest and adding foundational exercises nearly every student can learn printing letters clearly with precision without frustration developing a history of success from the very first letters they practice.
The Teacher’s Alphabet writing system was designed to make it as simple and easy as possible for a student to learn to print letters and develop their handwriting. The initial foundation exercises help develop pencil control and shape recognition.
The system includes a “letter recipe” for every letter and number which explains clearly how and where to make each stroke. The Teacher’s manual makes it easy for anyone to guide students in effective directed practice.
According to DeBoe the Teacher’s alphabet system is the cure for poor handwriting and irregular letters.
The system makes it easy for students to remember letters and execute printing them effectively because all the shapes are in their control and they’ve gained confidence through repeated success.
