Handwriting is a process student incur in daily life. It consumes largest portion of student’s curriculum. If such a major part is not up to the mark it has a big negative impact observable. If we could take this first necessary step in primary education, we will be saved from much useless expenditure. Not only that, but we would also enrich and even add to the life of children, because the change would enable them to achieve a greater mental and physical development.

  • Communication – Good handwriting is like the doorstep to the hall of communication. The basic function of the written word is to communicate and handwriting plays an important role in determining how effective the communication is.
  • Development of Mind & Motor skill Coordination – Writing is not just a physical activity, it originates from brain. It involves the brain that thinks, converts the thoughts into words, gives a command to the hands for the motor action & the final output is a readable product on the paper. Many subsequent studies at Indiana University have proved that during the process of writing with hand, it activates the neurons. The portion of the brain majorly activated is the one that is involved in learning of spellings, words, thinking etc. This proves that Handwriting helps in the process of development of the coordination between mind & motor skill.
  • Interest & achievement -It is a known fact good handwriting can help students fetch that extra mark in examinations. If a student has good handwriting then automatically his/her interest in studies and reading increases, he is able to retain much faster. The focus on hand-writing serves as a springboard for student achievement across the curriculum. If a person has a good handwriting in a particular language, he invariably would write beautifully in other lan-guages also
  • Ability to think – Legible handwriting enhances the writer’s ability to think.
  • Self Confidence – Handwriting can boost your self-confidence. Lack of confidence may be robbing you of success. Your handwriting may hold the proof to make you believe in yourself. You may find evidence of new talents or aptitudes in your handwriting that you never dreamed of.
  • One’s Development – Good handwriting is not only pleasing to the eye and easy to under-stand, it also tells us a whole lot of things about the person, clarity of thought, ability to orga-nize, and balance in presentation. It definitely brings a positive change in life, for dull students it can be a start towards improvement in their studies and to make them more determined
  • Improvement of Linguistic Skills – It is seen that students remember & recall better when they memorize words written by hand than the students who only just memorize through reading. It has also been observed that the students who write speedily van think and compose better. But the ones with poor handwriting has impaired reading skills & poor formation in spellings & words and also hampers logical subjects like Maths also, where the marks scored in examination by the student also deteriorates.

The ability to write neatly and quickly is one of the crucial foundations of success in school and in life. Students who need to improve handwriting skill will often have difficulties in other areas of aca-demic achievement, not because they lack the intelligence to achieve, but because their handwriting problems stand in the way of communicating the knowledge they have. You also know the frustra-tion of exam papers with sloppy handwriting. You want to do justice to students’ efforts, but it can be difficult to recognize what they have written, because of how they have written it.

Handwriting originates in the brain, when a mental picture of letters and words is formed. The brain then sends this mental picture, in the form of signals, to the arm and hand, through the muscles and nervous system. 

When a person writes something, it is their hand that does the writing, but their brain that dictates how to write the letters. Handwriting is communicating through the act of writing information by hand.

There are many components involved in the simple act of handwriting, which includes simultaneously controlling

  • The nerves and muscles in the arm, wrist, hand and fingers, which are moving in four differ-ent directions; as well as controlling the amount of pressure applied, so one does not rip through the paper or write so lightly that it is almost invisible.
  • Focusing the eyes on the writing.
  • The components of language, sentence structure and letter formations.
  • The mental processing involved in expressing the thought which one is trying to communicate in writing.

There are several basic brain processes involved in handwriting. The proper focusing of the eyes, requires integration between the two hemispheres of the brain. Writing neatly and creating the magic of handwriting on paper, is a fine motor activity which requires good hand eye coordination and good fine motor skill. Binocular teaming is the ability of both eyes to work together to provide accurate information to the brain. All forms of writing increase the left brain’s dominance over the right-an alphabet being the most abstract form of writing, enhances left-brain values the most. Cursive handwriting activates the Beta waves in the brain. (i.e. active waves, working waves, creative waves)

Handwriting may be some or all of these things. For some it is purely an art form, and the neatness and accuracy of the presentation is the main focus. For others, it needs to be a functional tool which allows them to put ideas on to paper, effortlessly and fast. Here, the look of the script is less important than the fluency of the script. For all of us, there are times when we need handwriting for one purpose or the other.

Our handwriting is very personal, a part of our self-image and an expression of our personality, just as the way we dress and present ourselves. We all have a view on how our handwriting appears to others and would sometimes like that image to be different!

Handwriting is a means of expressing language, just like speech, and it also leaves a lasting trace. Some call it ‘Language by Hand’. It is a physical way of expressing thoughts and ideas and a means of communicating with others.

Mark-making is basic to man. Symbolic representation for others to interpret is uniquely human and it is known that man has engaged in writing since cave paintings were first discovered. However, the production of the symbols of any writing system is not something which comes naturally, like walking or jumping. We cannot write unless we have been taught how to, a fact which is sometimes ignored. The formations of the symbols within each writing system have ideal movement patterns, and the spatial relationships between symbols and the directional conventions on the page have to be communicated between generations.

Handwriting is a skill to master, one which involves linguistic, cognitive, perceptual and motor components, all of which have to be coordinated into an integrated fashion. Although we take it for granted, some people, young and old, find handwriting very difficult to perform and feel they need help to perfect the skill and therefore SKCIPL, is there to help you.

We always wonder, how did handwriting develop? Handwriting evolved over a few thousand years ago, changing & adapting to new cultures, rituals and new technologies. In the beginning, before writing came into existence there was only verbal communication, with cultural norms, rituals & stories passed on orally from one generation to the other and became the only source of retaining history. As language and cultures evolved and so did the need for communication also. In order to meet the need, written communication came into existence in the form of simple drawing and inscriptions. These drawings & inscriptions became pictographs and pictographs became standardized within every culture. Writing came into existence. Writing…., a codified system of standardized symbols & drawing. These different standardized symbols & drawings, agreed upon the simple shapes & its size were developed in different cultures & communities which were repeatedly use to represent ideas & interact with each other. Over span of years this developed into a set of pattern, which generally came to be known as ‘Language’.

These recognizable writing systems developed in three major cultures within 1200 years of each other. Sumerian cuneiform developed around 3000 BC, Egyptian hieroglyphs around 2000 BC & the precursor of Kanji Chinese around 1800 BC. The development of writing allowed cultures to record events, laws, history, science, theories in math, creating literature, medicine etc.

Writing Innovations & Development

To represent people, places and things simple pictographs were used. These pictographs became ideographs an abstract symbol that evolved beyond the original drawings. As the needs for communication increased & expanded, these different pictographs were combined to represent ideas & the required knowledge to interpret the new symbols. Different cultures adapted different methods of writing ideographs

  • The Sumerian scribes used to write from top to bottom & right to left on a long, vertical tablet of wet clay.Ideographs were combined to meet the phonetic requirements of different developing languages to sound out longer words, which later developed into Phonograms.
  • The Egyptians started using papyrus & reed brushes for writing in 2400 BC. With the use of ink on Papyrus, the writing became more smooth & quick which made symbols less angular & more rounded in appearance. It is also known as Hierographs or Hieroglyphs. These hieroglyphs were further simplified in 1500 BC known as hieratic script. These script was used for religious writing was therefore also known as Priestly writing which later was also used for commerce. In around 500 BC this script was more simplified known as Demotic Script i.e. Script of the people. This script was widely spread & used by the common masses.
  • The ancient Phoenician Alphabet was also developed around 1500 BC, which comprised of 22 phonetically based symbols which were widely used. Under the rule of Alexander the great, this script had spread to Greece & was further spread to Persia, Egypt & India.
  • The Roman Empire rose in the 2nd century in 146 BC. The Romans conquered over Greece & adopted many aspects of Greek culture, including the 23 – letter alphabets, which spread across Europe, England, Northern Africa & the Persian Gulf. In 400 AD the width of alphabets were also condensed, so that more text could fit into Parchment & Papyrus as there materials were expensive. This developed into a Roman Script used for every day transaction, book-keeping etc.
  • The Christianity and Celtic Writing came into existence in an around 600 AD. The Celtic style of lettering involved writing the letters within one inch square guides & were known as Unicals. The letters were very rounded in style & ascenders were extended on the lower case letters. Also word spacing was increased to improve the readability.
  • During the reign of Charlemagne, writing was standardized. With addition of alphabets V, U & J, the 26 alphabets of the roman script came into being between 700 AD to 1500 AD.

Children over age five spend most of the school day writing. Generally, children that write well perform better in school. In fact, studies show that young children with poor handwriting skills produce shorter, less complex written assignments than their classmates with good handwriting. The same studies also note that when children improve their handwriting, they also improve the length and complexity of their written assignments.

Hand writing is one of important aspect of education which has been long neglected due to lack of concrete methods but if we give attention & importance to this can benefit many of us, because Handwriting is the basic tool used in many areas by children, example they use it in many subjects, while taking notes in the classroom, writing tests, doing class-work or homework. Poor handwriting may have a pervasive effect on the overall performance. Moreover, labored handwriting creates a drain on mental resources needed for higher level aspects of writing, such as attention to content, elaboration of details and organization of ideas.

Handwriting plays a very important role in life .It is a well proven fact that if a student knows a lot about the subject but can’t write them in a proper way with good handwriting, he can’t compete with other students with good handwriting. In other words, handwriting plays a vital role in educating students. If the student has knowledge but cannot write legibly in exams, it often leads to failure. If teachers have poor handwriting, as they write on board it percolates in the copies of all students of his/her own class and all students get affected with bad handwriting because it is a scientific fact that the brain tries to copy and follow whatever is seen through eyes. To ensure that students develop good handwriting, teachers with good handwriting are needed. If teachers are trained for handwriting and blackboard writing it improves the writing of the whole generation.

Handwriting fluency is fundamental to all areas of elementary education. Handwriting is an essential skill for both children and adults. Even in the age of technology, handwriting remains the primary tool of communication and knowledge assessment for students in the classroom.
