  2. 2. Calligraphy: Why teach Calligraphy? Calligraphy is not taught because students will write with a calligraphy script in their personal or professional lives as adults, but rather because learning to write neatly with a calligraphy pen requires deep concentration and accurate observation skills. The personal habits of intellectual stamina and individual discipline are also exercised. These habits are the same as those required by students who will become successful in any intellectual or academic endeavor in the future. Beyond this fact, the final product of calligraphy writing is a beautifully executed artistic creation that becomes a source of personal pride for the student. Finally, it would seem that the synapses and dendrites of the brain are exercised and strengthened throughout the calligraphy writing learning process.
  3. 3. Attention Deficit Disorder A National Concern “Dr. R. Joseph indicates that the entire right brain is dominant in regard to attention and arousal, factors strongly influenced by the handwriting process. Manipulating the fingers through handwriting not only calms the right brain, but also stimulates the left brain, the ‘brain that goes to school,’ where the specialized reading/writing capacities are located.” Jeanette Farmer, C.G. “Why is Attention Deficit Disorder So prevalent in the US?” pg. 1 Brain research has identified the critical need to supply a variety of multi-sensory stimulation to the young brain for motor development. Multi-sensory handwriting training answers that need in an innovative way, creating a powerful 21st century educational concept tied to the learning styles. Using visual, auditory, tactile and kinesthetic stimulation in a non-threatening format greatly enhances the brain’s ability to learn. The process significantly impacts the limbic system the “emotional brain,” from which impulses arise. With handwriting’s inherent capacity to “train and organize the young brain,” it’s an essential “molder of the mind.” Jeanette Farmer, C.G. “Why is Attention Deficit Disorder So prevalent in the US?” pg. 5
