The Getty-Dubay Italic Handwriting Series
by Barbara Getty and Inga Dubay
A comprehensive handwriting program for K - 6th Grade.
Join the thousands of students everyday who learn to write using Getty-Dubay.
Even if you've never taught handwriting, you'll find the Getty-Dubay Italic Handwriting Series easy to follow and full of step-by-step guidance, tips, and creative practice materials. Each of the seven books in the series has been designed to utilize the child's natural curiosity and thirst for learning. The unique "Look-Plan-Practice" approach to self-assessment enhances legibility while empowering your student, encouraging responsibility for his or her own progress. The Instruction Manual for teachers and homeschool parents provides additional guidance for all grades.
Getty-Dubay Italic is...
- Legible. Italic letterforms are uncluttered and loop-free, even when written rapidly.
- Logical. The transition from printing to cursive is straightforward and intuitive. Letter shapes remain the same from basic italic to cursive italic, eliminating the abrupt leap from "ball and stick" to looped cursive seen in other programs.
- Easy to Write. The elliptical shapes and strokes of italic conform to natural, rhythmic hand movements. The letters are formed easily and quickly.
- Easy to Teach. The Getty-Dubay Italic Handwriting Series provides a clear, concise, step-by-step approach with opportunity for lots of practice.
Pick up a pen and immediately you are connected to 3,000 years of history. Because the history of writing is a rich foundation for understanding how and why we write, Getty-Dubay Italic Handwriting Series Books D-G and the Instruction Manual contain information about the evolution of letters. In addition, the writing practice content topic in Book G is the history of writing and papermaking.
