Each slide has two passages students may either trace (or teacher may use as models), one manuscript and one cursive. There are 6 slides from which to choose your ink shade or style. To encourage students to improve their manuscript, give them their own mechanical pencil with .7mm lead. To encourage their cursive, let them use a "fine" or "ultra fine" calligraphy pen to trace (helps in manuscript, too, but I hold it out for "more sophisticated" writers as an incentive to practice cursive). Useful as a reminder of positive character traits, written in concrete expectations. Example: I will continue to improve my citizenship by getting my tasks done without wasting class work time socializing.
