How much emphasis is placed on handwriting in schools?
With AusVELs rolling out their new ideals and guidelines for teaching and learning for the new generations of learners I have searched high and low for progression points that ascertain to handwriting.
I have found 3 mentions in Early Years; Foundation, Level 1 and Level 4. Does this answer the drop in student handwriting in schools? As I decipher yet another piece of students writing trying to find the elusive ‘finger spaces’ among other things is there much demand or emphasis on accurately forming letters?
