An old favorite gets a new look. Our Instruction Manual form the Getty-Dubay® Italic Handwriting Series has a new cover image, and a new lay-flat binding style. Teachers and parents will appreciate the new type of perfect binding that allows the book to remain open on a desk for easy reference.
The other Books A-G in the Series have cover images taken by photographer Tony Midson, highlighting scenes from nature in Oregon, the authors’ home state. The new Instruction Manual cover image continues this aesthetic, with a view from an old barn near Dufur, Oregon looking North across the Columbia river gorge to nearby Washington.
Although the Getty-Dubay® Italic Handwriting Series Books A-G are complete and ready to use in the classroom or homeschool, either as a set or individually, the Instruction Manual provides many additional resources.
In it you’ll find:
- a background philosophy of italic handwriting
- classroom management plans
- detailed notes for teachers for each of the seven workbooks A – G
- best practices for letter formation
- assessment tools and forms
- scope and sequence
- tips on reading conventional looped cursive
- additional student activities
- and so much more!
Some parents wonder if they need to buy the Instruction Manual for their homeschool. No, it is not necessary have the Instruction Manual in addition to the workbooks in order to teach Getty-Dubay® Italic. But, if you do buy it, you’ll be happy you did!
The Instruction Manual is included in the complete series set that contains all the Getty-Dubay® Italic Handwriting Series books and two desk strips for $88.95.
