Many will remember their early years in school, around the second or third grade in the United States or somewhere around that, where they learned cursive writing. It was an entirely new world of writing than with the printing that you can used to. Cursive writing can often fall into two different categories. Stylish and neat or rather messy and ugly looking, depending on the person. There is no common ground. And often times, after a few years, people step away from using cursive writing, more often returning to printing when they write by hand or more commonly, just typingtheir work on the computer, printing it off.
Cursive Writing-A Relic For Another Time
Many teachers in this day and age, realize that it is an utter nightmare to read cursive writing or really any writing at all for that matter. Many of them might really use it all that often this time. In this day and age, writing is slowly going by the wayside, as more children use computers at a younger way. Things are moving to the point where all but a select few assignments can be done on the computer.
Even before the day and theage of computers and doing school assignments on computers, the cursive writing style did not really stick all that often. Many hung up, but many reverted back to printing, as there were teachers who wished to make their life a bit more easier and have it being able to read. Cursive writing in many ways was an art and like many arts, very few people can pull it off. People who react as if young children should get such a stylish and artistic form of writing is a huge problem, they are kind of missing point.
Many(but not all adults) barely even use any cursive when they leave the educational environment, when they leave formal education. The only thing you must know how to write in cursive is your own name, when you sign important documents. That is it, your signature is the only thing that we should know. And that’s the only thing most adults will ever write in cursive.
