Handwriting by George Vol. 3

by Cyndy Shearer

$9.95

Quick Overview

Each volume of Handwriting by George contains 27 or 28 entries from George Washington's noted book Rules of Civility & Decent Behavior in Company & Conversation. Each entry is printed on double-ruled paper for students to copy as penmanship practice. Opposite each handwriting page is a space for the student to depict the rule according to his or her own unique (and quite possibly humorous) perspective. While Washington's musings on etiquette and social interaction were originally written for young ladies and gentlemen of the 18th century, they are more than applicable to kids of today
 

Details

When George Washington was sixteen years old, he began copying 110 maxims for polite behavior into his schoolbooks. These rules describe the behavior of a gentleman, and many claim that they greatly influenced Washington’s attitudes and standards for his own behavior. One day, when we were all tired of the standard handwriting practice book copy material, we began using Washington’s Rules as copy work. While many of them have obvious application to the eighteenth century, they also have a lot to say to modern gentlemen and ladies. We hadn’t expected to enjoy these sayings as much as we did. They rarely stayed merely copywork exercise but became the basis of other discussions. “Show nothing to your friend that might affright him,” had immediate application. Other rules addressed putting others first and self last - and other ways to show respect to those around us. 64 pages
