|Abstract: ||The government of Ghana, has embarked on an educational reform which is focused on the restructure and the organisation of the content of the secondary school curriculum in a bid to gear education towards national development.
Lettering still forms part of the art curriculum and this shows how important the subject is to national development. It, therefore, has to be handled with all diligence and skill.
Taking J.S.S. teachers into consideration, one would notice that not all vocational skills or art teachers, for that matter, studied lettering during their training. Thus it becomes
difficult to present the subject to the students the way it should be done. This manual, therefore, seeks to help the vocational skills teacher teach more effectively. The basic structure for both the upper case and lower case letters is discussed. The processes by which letters are extended and condensed are also discussed. The manual also has a documentation of five letter styles (both serif and sans serif). The writer dwells briefly on numerals and also gives an introduction to calligraphy.
The teacher who uses this manual would enjoy teaching lettering better since he or she would have various aspects of the subject to explore. Students who go through the step by step instructional programme provided in the manual would be able to do mini jobs involving lettering after graduation. The knowledge and skill they would acquire would help them perform excellently after having some experience with way side artists or artists in general.
Bettor skills in lettering will go a long way to make written scripts, posters arid banners more attractive and easier to read and comprehend. In the long run, lettering
will play its role in national development.|
