Cursive, Oh Where Did You Go?

Posted in Uncategorized at 4:53 pm by pinkdomo

Question: Many states have completely abandoned the teaching of cursive in recent years.  What do you think about this?  Were you taught cursive in school?  Do you think it is a worthwhile thing for elementary students to spend time on?

Answer: Cursive has many purposes in daily society.

Don’t believe me? It’s okay, I don’t really believe that lie at all either. There are facts that PROVE that cursive has many benefits/purposes for existent.

1) Cursive saves time and causes the word to look fancy. 

2) It allows the people with bad handwriting’s words/letters look much better than it really is. See, people with messy handwriting usually connect their letters together, and slant it in an unreadable way. Cursive helps, because…Oh wait- that’s what cursive is.

3) It lets the teachers in states who still teach cursive, spend 3 weeks teaching it to students. In other words, the teachers get 3 weeks of class time to themselves, as young children get to sit at their desks, trying to figure out which letter is which.

4) Celebrities used cursive to obtain their unreadable autographs.

Can anyone read half of them?

. . .

It’s okay, I can’t either :/

5) There’s really nothing else. Anyone who believes cursive has a reason to exist, is sadly mistaken. Believing that cursive has a purpose, is like saying that elephants are pink and pigs can fly.

Hopefully, as time continues on, the next few generations will NOT spend a month on a cursive packet that will help them in no way whatsoever. Did anyone else feel like the teachers ran out of things to teach us on, therefore spend an extra month on cursive? Am I expressing my future hope based off of my annoyance of MY experience with cursive?

Yes

Of course not.

My Blog :]

Hey guys, welcome to my blog!

My name is Victoria. You probably already know that. After all, you ARE on my blog (made just for my Honors Lit class c: )…

So, some pointless facts about myself (:

I’m a freshman at NHS. Im not one of those people that could pass off as a sophmore or junior. No no no, see, I’m one of those people who can pass off as a 4th grader. Im only 4ft 11 :/

Like any normal teenager, Facebook is my LIFE, right after youtube of course.

I love the colors navy blue and beige.

My favorite foods are sushi and pancakes… preferably not together.

I find it hilarious when people look for things when the object is in their hand. Not that I’ve done that a million times or anything.

I hate it when I walk into a room and forget what I walked in there for. I’ve literally walked out of a room, then back in, then back out, then back in again to realize the object I needed was upstairs- but. Life’s still good.

My 2 favorite TV shows are 9 Lives of Chloe King and Project Runway. OhmyOlivier. Pffttt, I’m not obsessed ❤

Oh, and a question of UPMOST IMPORTANCE:

. . . . .

. . . . .Twilight vs. Harry Potter? Harry Potter all the way.
