WOW! A handwriting-related message by me got "favorited" BY THE NEWS-MEDIUM that I was countering therewith! See below ... (The news-medium is an education-news service which had been promoting, as fact, a PBS news-segment that misrepresented research on handwriting to make it appear to support cursive.)

This has been brought up by my university on my PGCE teaching course. Stating handwriting is fundamental in helping children spell and read etc. France and another E.U. country actual prioritise handwriting to a very high level (good times).

It is interesting to see that the handwritings of "France and another [unnamed] EU country" were mentioned in your teaching course. Which French handwriting was discussed — the vertical 100%-connected "Ronde" that has been used there for a century or two, or the very different (italic) style that France is now phasing in? Here's a link to the latter: http://luc.devroye.org/fonts-59443.html

 

I'd also like to know what was the other EU nation discussed — the one that you didn't name.

Geez Kate, I cant help notice that you came into these forums with your pistol loaded, drawn and off safety. May i suggest using a 45 Colt Automatic 1911 A1? The bluntness of the .452 caliber bullet will hazard a persons body and psyche considerably.

 

I bought a e book not to long ago that taught handwriting rescue and while it did compel me to try and improve my handwriting in a new and improved way, I ended up returning to a cursive - French (?) style hybrid. Simple old palmer drills and practice improved my writing to the point where a local stationer paid me a compliment.

 

For me, writing is zen. Much more is involved in a letter particularly when writing in kanji or katakana than the meaning itself. More is there.

 

As for writing as a whole, it really has very little need in present times. US submarines are paperless and seems to function quite well without it (hoping this is very true since many carry massive megatons of thermonuclear explosives on board). I just recently bought a Samsung Galaxy Tabpro that has just about killed any reason to write with pen or ink.

 

Yet I do. I actively seek a reason to. I suspect I am not the only person so inclined.
