Good for the Jamestown Public Schools to incorporate this model into their curriculum.

In 1952 one little Nun taught about 35+ first graders cursive writing with only paper, pencils, and blackboard and chalk. They seemed to skip over "Printing" back then and went right to cursive. There were no tears and some good penmanship was developed. Gee?? How did they do it back then?

It is an artform, but will probably go the way of Latin being necessary.

It is wonderful to see that teachers remain dedicated in keeping cursive writing as a mainstay in today's world. :)

When I used HWT, I had to created additional worksheets and it had no digital component. I did like the simplified font and wording. However, now we use Write on Handwriting products, which were developed by educators. ****writeonhandwriting**** . Products are easy to use and have digital components, including a new iPad app.
