Real penmanship 17. November 2006
Von Karen Traviss - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
A wonderful set of books if you're serious about penmanship, or wanting to see what those super-flex nibs in your collection can really do. It's been a very, very long time indeed since I sat down with a ruled exercise book and copied letters in an uncertain hand, so this was a slightly surreal (and highly therapeutic) experience all round. You need to set aside some time in a quiet room to work through the exercises and read the theory thoroughly, but it's worth it. It's also a fascinating glimpse into long-vanished teaching methods. Recommended for anyone interested in calligraphy or acquiring the principles of a more elegant hand. Best approached with a very flexible nib and plenty of patience.

Beautiful writing 29. März 2011
Von Kristi D. Kerr - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This set it not meant to be used as a penmanship course for students anymore, but... that's what I did. After looking through the available resources for my children, I didn't find anything that suited us. I have horrible handwriting, my husband's isn't much better, so legible, attractive penmanship was a high priority for us. I bought one set for each of my older children (now 8 and 9), and, when they showed me the appropriate dedication to their penmanship by consistently giving me neat print writing, we moved onto the first copybook.

It's taken about a year and a half to two years, but my oldest is now in copybook 5, and has the loveliest handwriting of any 9 year old I've ever seen. She'll be moving on to longer passages of copywork when she finishes the book, and she's more than prepared. She does all of her schoolwork in Spencerian. We did have to adjust some of the letters (for example, I believe the "p" doesn't connect at the bottom... that would've made it difficult for a modern reader to read, so we had her connect it), but, overall, they use the letters as written, and it works well.

With my son, who is 8, it's taking a bit longer, but he is also very proud of his penmanship, and rather determined to improve it, so I don't worry about how long it's taking him.

We do homeschool, however, and have plenty of time to spend on penmanship at this stage. I plan on using Spencerian for the cursive penmanship course for the rest of my children.

It's never too late... 16. September 2008
Von E. Armistead - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I rub my greedy little teacher's hands together as I look at the booklets before me. Now I want a classroom set; now I want every student to have one. Yes, they are 10th graders, but it is never too late to have copperplate handwriting. They would scream in horror - no text-messaging this!!!

Oh, they are lovely little books. I'm going to learn from them, convince my principal that the expense is necessary, buy thirty sets, and inflict this new (yet classically antique and elegant) skill on my students!!!

A fantastic price for a high value tool 20. März 2013
Von S. Dawdy - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I bought this set for my homeschool freshman son, wanting to get back to the basics of excellent handwriting. Having homeschooled two other children through high school who, despite being urged to do handwriting of some sort every school year through 10th - 11th grades, consistently balked at learning how to write manuscript. I'm sorry I didn't make it more of a requirement than an option.

I've noticed, and had confirmed my by other parents, both homeschooled and "regular" school, that there has been a significantly decreasing emphasis on this skill in the past 15 - 20 years.

I'm determined that my youngest will have this skill well developed when he graduates.

One key reason for this is that the older two students, one now a college senior, recognized their own folly upon going to college. Their lack of proficiency with manuscript, they've come to realize, just slows them down with note taking, in writing answers to essay questions on tests, etc.

Another reason for proficiency with this skill becomes apparent when its time for students to prepare for college, if they're intention is to attend one. Inability to use manuscript proficiency, some studies have consistently shown, results in a lower score on essay answers.

A lot of homeschool parents are "curriculum" junkies, so a lot of us have extensive collections of materials. I've had very many handwriting materials over the years and I find that the Spencerian set is the best one I've ever seen.

Skills are broken down into easily comprehensible and focused sections, requiring a small time investment for each. This makes use of the system much more likely; learning and practicing skills is not burdensome. The language employed is engaging and direct.

The materials themselves are attractive and very inviting. I haven't seen anyone encounter the set so far that doesn't respond with delight in the appearance and a desire to thumb through and take a look.

In addition to the elegant appeal of the appearance, the presentation and overall design for use is very efficient: lessons are in the theory book, which one will have forever available, with practice meant to occur in the copybooks. You can simply purchase one theory book and reuse it, time and again, and simply purchase a set, or singles, of the copybooks, or migrate to paper over time.

I'd recommend this set for anyone who is starting a child in third or fourth grade - as long as that child has average to above average reading comprehension abilities, or with intention of direct instruction - all the way to adults who want to improve their own handwriting.

If I were to do things over again on this subject, I'd start and stay with this program. In addition to all of its smart features, it is an incredible value, which I know comes at a high premium for a lot of homeschool families, who are always working to stretch their budgets.

A Fine Way to Learn the Lost Art of 19th Century Penmanship 16. Juli 2008
Von Ken Roberts - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
As a Civil War re-enactor / living historian, this collection of writing books featuring the Spencerian system of penmanship is a valuable body of original books/pamphlets that was originally printed in 1874. Spencerian writing, however, was in practice more than twenty years before and is perfect for one who takes living history and re-enacting seriously. Spencerian penmanship was THE style of the 19th century and chances are, if you have had the opportunity to see original (or copies of original) letters and documents of the time, this is the style of penmanship in which it was probably written.
As "postmaster" of the 21st Michigan Civil War Re-enactors Unit and the Michigan Soldiers Aid Society (MSAS - also Civil War era), I ask that our membership write letters to one another on period replica stationary. Unfortunately, the fact that we are 21st century people living our modern everyday lives reflects in the style in which we write. Now that I have these wonderful guides, I hope my fellow members in both units will take the time to learn to write in an authentic style. The winter months will give us time for practice.
I plan to make photo copies of the pages as to not ruin my originals, and I would suggest to the learner that they do the same.
A very fine collection of guide books to help us learn a lost art.
