Penmanship

Or perhaps I should say 'handwriting.' What good is teaching it, since every kid is now wired into a keyboard almost from birth?

As it turns out, quite a bit, according to Newsweek (via Andrew Sullivan). And as many of us have always suspected, it should still be taught, and more intently than the less than 10 minutes a school day at best that is now devoted to it.

Hand-writing. It's not just for fountain pen fanatics.

I was never a fan of cursive. Whenever I right that, it is a modified cursive and whenever I am writing a letter, by hand (only thank you notes), I prefer printing.

This could be an engineering thing because none of my friends write in cursive either.

Oh I do just not for this ;)

Apparently I need help with homonyms. Right = Write for the post...

So who needs help?

I don't have any problems.

Well, I didn't until I started taking care of a whip smart stubborn little 5 yr old.
