Common Core left Handwriting Behind!
Manage episode 343547546 series 2336488
School-based OT practitioners are not handwriting teachers! However, handwriting is often the most common reason for referral.
In our chat with Debra Collette, OTD, OTR/L, we are discussing a recent article where she surveyed teachers, administrators, and therapists on the missing pieces of handwriting in schools. Ten years ago, common core began to take over school standards, but the standards neglected to include handwriting. Tune in to learn how common core standards have impacted handwriting and how you can support students and teachers in implementing a handwriting curriculum.
Tune in to learn the following objectives:
- Learners will identify the connects and disconnects between the common core curriculum with handwriting
- Learners will identify the impact common core has made on children’s written expression
- Learners will identify how common core and handwriting can impact OTPs
- Learners will identify what OTPs can do to support curriculum and handwriting on a systems level
