Hello parents and students!

Just a reminder: the essay tonight does not have to be written in cursive.

We went over 5 reasons that people are arguing for keeping cursive in the classroom, and your job is to write a persuasive essay either for or against cursive. Here are the five reasons:

  1. You need to use cursive to sign receipts and to sign documents. Do you agree that is a good reason to keep cursive?
  2. Studies have shown that cursive makes you smarter. What do you think?
  3. Being able to read cursive means that you can read important historical documents. Do you think that is a good reason to learn cursive?
  4. Believe it or not, some people have disabilities that would make reading print hard for them. Do you think that is a good reason to learn cursive?
  5. People argue that cursive is nice to look at. What is your opinion?

Remember to write at least 1 1/2 double-spaced pages!

Here are the upcoming events and A-list words for this week:
