Abstract: A series of ingenuous programmed workbooks for teaching basic handwriting skills with immediate reinforcement were tested with migrant children in Florida. Eight classrooms at each grade level (2, 4, and 6) were assigned to treatment or control conditions. The second grade experimental group did significantly better than the control group although the teaching procedure was only used for two weeks.
