A few years ago I created my own handwritten font because I was frustrated with the appearance of the traditional manuscript font and the confusion it was causing my students. I also wrote my own set of handwriting instructions that are clear, simple, and concise, focusing on where each letter starts and how many pickups it has. Below is a comparison of the Zaner Bloser traditional manuscript font and The Monaco Method’s handwritten font “Get Real”. Doesn’t it make sense to teach handwriting with a font that looks like a student’s handwriting should look?
