Want Smart Kids? Make Sure They Learn to Do This

As I was going through my selected readings I come upon this article about cursive writing. I have not been a fan of teaching cursive for quite some time, but maybe I need to rethink or at least reconsider its importance. I have excellent handwriting and always have. I take time to form all of the letters to make a readable copy. Even my signature is readable, not a typical scribble I see by many. This article does make me think about what cursive writing can do for someone beside good penmanship. We need creative learners so maybe we need people who can write …and read…in cursive.

There’s a brain-building skill schools are teaching less and less.
