Writing words in cursive

Submitted by jcarson on Thu, The decline of cursive Here in New Brunswick, cursive writing seems to have been removed from school curriculums, as it has been in most parts of Canada.

My eldest son is in middle school and has not learned any cursive in the classroom, and neither has my youngest son in grade one.

When their writing isn't done in print format, it is done on a computer or tablet. Teachers seem to stress writing for subject clarity, not aesthetics which is in many ways understandable. But this begged me to ask the question, "If they can't write in cursive, how can they possibly read it?

As both a librarian and a parent, I'm concerned about this generation's literacy. Not being able to read cursive could limit people's ability to pore over old letters and photographs, interpret historical documents, read wedding invitations or doctor's prescriptions, appreciate calligraphy — and yes, sign important paperwork.

Printed block letters are much easier to forge, and many government or banking documents require a scripted signature.

Our cursive writing workshops In an effort to stave off this cursive illiteracy, we began offering cursive writing workshops at the library in for anyone ages 5 and up. We usually only take five students at a time so they can get individual attention from the instructor.


First, we practice making lines and loops and warming up our hands with curvy doodles, building up some muscle memory before tackling the harder stuff. Next, we practice a few letters of the alphabet we don't have time to do all 26 in an hour!

We practice linking the letters together and talk about the importance of the "tails. I have them practice writing their birthday month. I ask the students to notice patterns in their words, and we talk about how letters and subsequently words are symbols that we give meaning to, just like we do with numbers.

We discuss how letters and writing and their patterns are not so different from math STEM programming! Then we wrap up by writing out the day of the week and month of the year. Each time a student completes a page in the workbook they get to reward themselves with a sticker from the book.

If you didn't have the budget for the relatively inexpensive workbooks, you could always print out free worksheets from the internet.

Everyone really enjoys this program and are happy to take the workbooks home at the end to keep practicing. I highly encourage trying this program out in your own library, for children or adults!Thus the Roman letters E and F are liable to be confused in capital script, but not in cursive (e, f), C, G, in capitals, c, e in the cursive writing called Caroline minuscule, c, t, in the angular cursive of the 13th century and later.
