  1. These days, more and more of us know someone who is utterly baffled by cursive handwriting. They will someday need to read something that is in cursive — but they are very unlikely to go to the trouble of learning to write cursive just for the sake of reading it. Even people who have been taught cursive as children often forget it, and find it a baffling mystery by the time they grow up. There are college entrants who’d “had” cursive in school at age 8, who can no longer read it by age 18. (Literally, as adults they cannot read their own childhood schoolwork.)

    Request For Resources

    Hello. I'm an occasional reader on FPN who has a strong interest in handwriting and fountain pens. I am going to teach a class in February 2020 at my high school in NYC that looks at different aspects of writing. I'm hoping that my students can practice using fountain pens. Over the years I have brought in a number of my pens for them to try, and I just purchased 15 Hero 565s for them to try out. Since there's been a bit of interest, I thought I'd see if there are resources that anyone is familiar with to share with my students. Things I'm interested in doing over the course of the project:

    Hello, everyone! My name is Bud Fields. I live just South and slightly left of Nashville, Tennessee in Columbia. I am not new to fountain pens, nor to journaling, but I am re-establishing my relationship with both. I look forward to learning, growing and sharing with you here. Writing Is FUN! Bud
  5. After buying a fountain pen/stylus combo from German manufacturer ONLINE, I received supplementary material that shows just how seriously they're into using onscreen writing, apps, and other ways to update the experience of writing with an ink pen, above all for schoolkids. I'm not sure of the German curriculum requirement that compels this, but it's obviously well catered for. Key to this is the ONLINE Discovery writing app, available for iOS and Android tablets of 10" and above. According to its blurb, "ONLINE has developed a supportive app for learning to write on paper and in addition on
  6. [Whoops! I posted a dupe. Catbert posted about this before - sorry. Moderators, remove the thread if you like. David] The Comeback of Cursive Once derided as a relic of the past, handwriting looks poised for a revival The Economist, Sep 7th 2016 EXCERPT: PARENTS are not the only ones bemoaning the way so many schools have given up teaching children to write longhand. Researchers are also aware that more than mere pride in penmanship is lost when people can no longer even read, let alone write, cursive script. Not being able to exchange notes with the boss or authenticate signatures, for
  7. Hi all! This is my first post, but I've been lurking and learning from you wonderful people for some time now. I am a public high school English / Language Arts teacher trying to start a calligraphy / handwriting club for my students. Many have shown great interest which is both amazing and scary when you consider that most of them have never learned a proper handwriting system / style in the first place. My school is big on technology and all students are issued their own laptop which, of course, drives me crazy because the worst thing you can do to kill kids' creativity when they are writing

  10. I have been helping HBO's news program LAST WEEK TONIGHT research a matter relevant to my profession and to our shared interest: namely, misrepresentations made by legislators in numerous US states, in order to require cursive. That I dislike so much about cursive-as-we-know-it is not the point of the program — the point is that the cursive boosters are systematically misrepresenting research documentation in order to make the documentation support cursive. This has been going on for a couple of years now, as you may know, in a number of state legislatures and school boards wher

  12. What the heck is going on in America?... "Is Cursive Writing Dead?" Read article dated 28 June 2013 here: http://www.livescience.com/37831-is-cursive-dead-cursive-writing.html Excerpting: A single sentence, uttered in the trial of George Zimmerman for the shooting of teenager Trayvon Martin, has catapulted an issue into the national spotlight. When asked if she could read a letter in court, witness Rachel Jeantel, her head bowed, murmured with embarrassment, "I don't read cursive," ABC News reports. and... "Cursive should be allowed to die. In fact, it's already dying, despite having be
