Abstract

This article presents results of the research on the emergence of a methodology of teaching
writing. A major part of the article is based on the materials available at the Scientific
Library of the Ivan Franko National University of Lviv, on the author’s personal collection
of books, as well as on texts and research reports available online. The research problem was to determine when the first methodological texts on the topic were published and
to what extent they applied the theoretical foundations that had been laid by language
researchers. The article uses such terms as graphic design, calligraphy and orthography
to systemically organise the terminology related to translating sounds into writing,
the graphic standards for letters and correct writing, i.e. writing in accordance with the
established rules. The author believes that the presented systematisation of the terms
graphic design, calligraphy and orthography constitutes an important new contribution
to the research on teaching orthography. Furthermore, this is also the first study
to present in this context the book Nauka o dobrem piśmie (‘Learning to Write Well’)
by Onufry Kopczyński, dated to 1807. The analysis is accompanied by a methodological
reflexion on the rules that govern the shaping of the standard correct Polish writing from
the historical perspective, that is, from the emergence of Polish words to the time when
the aforementioned book was published, i.e. to the period of the Commission of National
Education.
