Handwriting guidelines now available


To address the instruction of manuscript and cursive writing in Ohio’s schools, the Ohio Legislature passed House Bill 58, which became effective on July 1, 2019. This legislation required the Ohio Department of Education to provide information on the development of handwriting and include supplemental instructional materials in the English Language Arts Model Curriculum.

Ohio’s Model Curriculum for English Language Arts Appendix A: Guidance and Supports for Handwriting now is available on the Department’s website.
