To Teach or Not to Teach Cursive Writing?

It’s not uncommon to hear people lament the loss of cursive writing in elementary school curricula.  Daily News Story, a collection of timely student resources offered by PBS NewsHour at PBS LearningMeda, uses this video along with teaching resources to give students a chance to weigh in on the cursive handwriting debate.  In addition to the video of this PBS NewsHour report, Why Some Schools Still Insist on Teaching Cursive Writing provides resources to support student understanding of the issue that includes a Teacher’s Guide, Student Handout, and Informational Text in Support Materials.
