Stem Specialist's curator insight, June 30, 2013 12:00 PM

I recently had a conversation about the relevance of teaching cursive handwriting in schools. What do you think?

Jennifer Shackles's comment, July 9, 2013 11:22 AM
How can students read "primary" historical documents if we have generations who cannot read cursive? Only linguists will be able to. How do these students "write" and "sign" their names on official documents? It may not need to be stressed as it once was, but I think it is still a necessary skill.
R.Conrath, Ed.D.'s curator insight, August 3, 2013 7:48 AM
Cursive is very important because is helps develop motor skills. It's not just about pretty penmanship.
