Dear SW List and Marianne!
Thank you for this question. Your Deaf students will enjoy writing by 
hand. I am posting this to the SignWriting List, because there are 
other List members who are writing by hand with their Deaf students 

First, SignWriting Shorthand is not the same as SignWriting 
Handwriting. The Handwriting is what you want. The Shorthand is another 
technique that is used to write movement at the speed it happens and 
yes, it has rules, but it also requires training...and it not the same 
as the Handwriting...

Here is a picture of SignWriting Shorthand, which is NOT the 
Handwriting....See next message...
