Handwriting as a part of the Language Arts program functions as one of the tool subjects used by the child to express his ideas.
Many of the experiences at each grade level require handwriting. Letters which are to be sent, reports which are to be filed as permanent records, notices which are for the bulletin board, provide experiences in which the pupil is eager to do his best handwriting.
The teaching of writing is carried on more and more in close correlation with the teaching of other subjects. The pupils are given more practice in writing materials which are drawn from other subjects. The subject matter and the methods of writing, particularly in the early grades, are fitted to the child's conceptions and interests and to the development of his manual dexterity.1
