Teachers are the most important resources in the education system. The quality of education depends on how teachers teach, motivate, and inspire the students to learn and become effective, competent, and productive citizens of the nation. As the frontliners in the education process, teachers must be effective in all aspects of the profession. Handwriting is important to show that writing improves memory. Students retain new ideas through handwriting instead of typing. Handwriting is important because learning the alphabet by interacting with each letter in different ways helps students imprint and retain the letter. Handwriting can help us slow down and fully engage with our thoughts. With a pen, we have instantly accessible creative and artistic opportunities that are not possible to wave when typing on a keyboard. Handwriting is an important skill that is required for school success as students use handwriting across the curriculum. Handwriting is often required to demonstrate students’ knowledge and skills through tests, homeworks, and reports. The researchers used quantitative and descriptive research methods as the research designs. The instruments used to gather data were survey questionnaires and related literature. The results of the study showed that having handwritten instructional materials was effective in supporting the students’ educational purposes and gain more knowledge. Based on the findings, the students should focus on using handwritten instructional materials and must have enough knowledge to focus on their studies. Teachers may encourage the student to study well and improve their handwriting skills.
