        Why Some Schools Still Insist on Teaching Cursive Writing

        Starting in the 1970s, and under the recent implementation of the Common Core, a former pillar of elementary education has been largely forgotten. But there's a feeling that learning cursive still has value, even in the age of typing and texting. Let your students weigh in on the cursive handwriting debate with this PBS NewsHour video and educational resources from May 9, 2014. For further background and materials to support student understanding of the issue see the Teacher’s Guide, Student Handout, and Informational Text in Support Materials.
