What's used in schools?
0

Hi all

Am doing an assignment for uni. and am trying to find out what the type is used to teach children to write. I just know it as cursive, but is that an actual font or what? And if so, where does it come from…If any one knows some info. or could point me in the right direction, it’d be much appreaciated!

Thanks

my mother’s a 3rd grade teacher and i believe she uses the school house fonts tiff linked to above. i think their font pack even comes with some nifty software that links the cursive together as it would in handwriting. I’ve used these b4 and they seem to be just like all those handwriting books i went through in gradeschool.
