The End of Cursive? – ABC News
So–should we still be teaching children cursive writing, or focus on teaching them keyboarding skills?
I say teach cursive, because you never know what could happen.
Let’s say the Internet is unavailable for a period of time; cell phones aren’t working and we can’t text (NO; say it isn’t true).
What will you do if you can’t write legibly?
I will be okay, because when I went to grade school (many many moons ago), we had to practice our cursive skills every day.
Of course, I have to admit that my handwriting is not as legible as it used to be; I spend so much time on a computer these days, at work and at home, that I’m sorry to say my cursive abilities have deteriorated somewhat.
What do you think?
Should cursive still be taught in schools?
