Under proposed legislation, all Tennessee third graders must learn to read and write in cursive. It sounds as though it's going to pass if no one bogs the bill down with other pet items.
Not clarified in the article is the style of cursive to be taught - will just any do?
Do you have a favourite style of cursive? I learnt to write in Connecticut and in New South Wales, Australia. So my writing is sort of a cross between the standard cursive you know and this. This is the only curriculum I've come across that uses capital A's and small r's like the ones I write.
One thing I could never quite get down was this concept of slope. My writing tends to be straight up and down, no matter what. I wonder what those special handwriting analysts would say about that. Probably that I didn't pay attention in class very well.
