The aim of this research is to examine the cursive italic handwriting of classroom teacher department students and to review the spelling mistakes made by the students of the classroom teacher department. In order to achieve this general purpose, the examination of the writing of the letters according to the uppercase and lowercase status, the italic and upright status of the writing and whether it conforms to the guideline lines are considered as criteria. The research is structured with document analysis and content analysis methods, which are qualitative data collection techniques. The third grade students, who are studying in a training faculty in the Central Anatolia region, are the research group. The data was created by collecting the writing books used by the students studying in the third grade within the scope of the course and analyzing the spelling errors by document analysis method. As a result of the research, it was determined that the most mistakes were made by the male teacher candidates, when examined according to the lowercase and uppercase, more mistakes were made in the lowercase than the uppercase. When the text is examined according to the italic status and the guideline; it was seen that the vast majority wrote appropriate. It was observed that the majority of the part that did not write in accordance with the guiding lines was written with a blank space without complying with the line lines, while the other candidate teachers wrote it by overflowing the guiding lines.
