Zaner-Bloser is pleased to offer complimentary in-service training to schools and districts that will be implementing Zaner-Bloser Handwriting in the fall of 2015.

We are offering three flexible training options:

  1. Live, virtual in-service training sessions
  2. On-demand in-service presentations
  3. On-site in-service training

The training content for the three options is the same, and the goal of this training is to teach South Carolina educators who have adopted Zaner-Bloser Handwriting, Grades 2–5, the basic concepts of handwriting instruction that contribute to legible and automatic cursive handwriting.

Appropriate for both teachers and administrators, we will cover the following in the training:

  • Handwriting basics, such as cursive strokes and joinings and the Keys to Legibility, by walking through the Teacher Edition
  • The Zaner-Bloser Handwriting instructional plan
  • How to integrate Digital Resources, the program's interactive whiteboard technology, and ZB FontsOnline Plus
  • Ways to find time to teach and complement existing instruction with cursive handwriting 
    For schools and districts that will also be instructing Zaner-Bloser Handwriting manuscript handwriting, we are offering complimentary manuscript training for Grades K–1 educators, too.

More information, including dates and times for the live, virtual sessions and how to register, is below.
