A MESSAGE TO STUDENTS WHO HAVE NEVER BEEN TAUGHT THE BASIC TRIPOD GRIP.
I really admire your tenacity. You have quite possibly never been shown the mechanics of the basic Tripod Grip, but you have taken a pencil, or a Biro, and managed to hold and control it, with all manner of different grips!
In so doing, you have managed to put pen/pencil to paper,and produce written work.
It is very hard to change a pen grip, however, some people have (with help) achieved the more relaxed basic Tripod Grip.
The following website and You Tube clips by Nan Jay Bochowsky are very good.
How to make your handwriting personal The message from Nan Jay in this last video clip is worth pondering. Competition for employment today is intense, and I think students need to be taught everything possible, that will give them an advantage, as they move into the workforce.
Thank you Nan Jay for your permission to link to your Website
