Should Cursive Have to be Taught?

Should Cursive Have to be Taught?


SHOULD CURSIVE WRITING BE MANDATORY IN INDIANA SCHOOLS? ONE STATE LAWMAKER THINKS SO. SHE WANTS CURSIVE TO BE PART OF THE CURRICULUM. AND A LARGE PORTION OF THE SENATE AGREES, PASSING THE BILL ONTO THE HOUSE YESTERDAY. NEWSCHANNEL 15’S SARA SCHAEFER JOINS US IN STUDIO 15 WITH MORE. AFTER THE BILL PASSED YESTERDAY, THERE’S BEEN A LOT OF DISCUSSION ABOUT THIS. SO WE LOOKED INTO IT SOME MORE TODAY. FROM WHAT I’VE FOUND ONLINE, LEGAL DOCUMENTS DON’T REQUIRE A CURSIVE SIGNATURE. AND THAT’S WHAT A LOT OF PEOPLE STILL USE IT FOR. BUT I ALSO FOUND OUT THERE ACTUALLY ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO SUPPORT THIS IDEA. ACCORDING TO HISTORY.COM, CURSIVE WRITING HAS BEEN AROUND IN SCHOOLS SINCE THE EARLY 1700S BUT IT HASN’T BEEN A CORE REQUIREMENT IN INDIANA AND HAS EVENTUALLY FADED OUT OF LESSON PLANS. STILL, MORE PEOPLE THAN YOU MIGHT THINK STILL USE IT OUTSIDE OF THE CLASSROOM. 16:23:27I DO USE CURSIVE. NOT FOR JUST GENERAL WRITING. I KIND OF HAVE A MIX OF PRINT AND CURSIVE. 18:07:00I PERSONALLY WRITE IN CURSIVE, I THINK IT’S COOL. SENATOR JEAN LEISING ALSO THINKS IT’S COOL. SHE’S BEEN TRYING FOR THE PAST SIX YEARS TO REQUIRE EACH INDIANA SCHOOL CORPORATION, CHARTER SCHOOL AND ACCREDITED NONPUBLIC ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS TO ADD CURSIVE TO THE CORE CURRICULUM. PROFESSOR AND CHAIR OF EDUCATIONAL STUDIES AT IPFW, ISABEL NUNEZ THINKS IT’S A HARD SELL. 10:17:04SO MUCH OF TEACHER’S WORK IS MANDATED AND THE CURRICULUM IS SO CONSTRAINED BY OTHER KINDS OF MANDATES. AS OF 3 THIS AFTERNOON, ALMOST 90 PERCENT OF THE VOTERS ON THIS POLL ON WANE.COM SAID IT’S A GOOD IDEA. AND ALMOST EVERYONE I TALKED TO AGREES. 16:14:13THERES A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO STILL WRITE AND READ IT SO ITS IMPORTANT FOR OUR KIDS TO LEARN THAT. 10:00:08 A PART OF ME REALYL RESIGNATES WITH THAT DESIRE AND THAT IMPETUS TO BRING THIS PART OF HUMAN EXPRESSION BACK INTO THE CURRICULUM. 16:54:08I THINK THAT STUDENTS SHOULD WRITE IN WHATEVER STYLE THEY WANT. PRINT IS GOOD AND CURSIVE IS GOOD AND NEITHER SHOULD BE MANDATORY.. I TALKED ON THE PHONE WITH THE SENATOR BEHIND THIS JUST A LITTLE BIT AGO. I’LL HAVE MORE FROM HER AT SIX. YOU CAN STILL VOTE ON THE POLL ABOUT CURSIVE RIGHT NOW ON WANE.COM IN STUDIO SSNC15.
