Teacher Reports Cursive To Be Dying
This photo is to illustrate that reading off paper is still practiced.
Recently at curriculum night the fourth-grade teacher said although cursive was being taught it was unpopular when students were given a choice of how to record their thoughts. He thought cursive handwriting was dying out to be replaced by keyboard skills.
Not sure what to make of this development. I enjoy writing in cursive, but not if anyone really needs to understand what I write.
