My Project

I'm requesting a class set of Cursive Writing Workbooks for students to learn the art and keep it alive.

Cursive reinforces the mantra that learning should simply be for learning—not just to pass a test.

Though the world is becoming more and more technology-dependent, there is something to be said for retaining a part of classic writing skills in the curriculum.

Cursive writing develops motor skills, guarantee students will be confident when writing and signing legal documentation, helps students with disabilities, is an art form all its own, and connects students to the past. Cursive writing is one more way for students to develop the side of their brain that is not developed by basic reading and writing skills. The more diverse a teaching curriculum is, the better.
