There is currently a fight to keep handwriting alive in our society. There is a fear that if we don’t preserve this way of maintaining knowledge then our history from here on out is in danger of being lost forever. From the beginning, all of our ancient knowledge has been preserved because it was written on cave walls or carved into stone. Without this way of maintaining knowledge, everything that we have learned could be lost.

A recent publicity release from BIC, in the interest of keeping handwriting alive, informed me of this important date as well as their “Fight for Your Write” mission to promote the importance of teaching handwriting to kids in school and at home.

Cursive writing has become a state of issue.

Seven states, namely California, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Utah, Massachusetts and North Carolina have fought to keep cursive in their curriculum.  In 2013, the Common Core State Standards dictated that cursive would no longer be taught in elementary schools but many educators and child psychologists feel that writing has positive effects. Cursive writing help improves cognitive development and motor skills, builds self-confidence. It also improves reading skills because when forming the letters, children learn the sound at the same time. Finally, it is proven to help foster creativity and critical thinking skills.

Key Takeaways:

In addition to fine motor skills, cursive can improve self-confidence, reading skills, and creativity and critical thinking.
In addition, handwriting is a personal trait that often conveys warmth and feeling in a way technology cannot match.
