Congratulations to Spoede’s Carter Freer, a fourth grade student who was featured in this week’s issue of Time For Kids! As part of the argument writing unit in class, all fourth grade students submitted their opinion essay on “Should Schools Teach Cursive?” Carter’s essay was chosen by the TFK’s web producer to be featured!
Here is a screen shot of the page, including Carter’s essay. If you’re having trouble reading his argument, see the text below:
“Cursive should not be taught in schools. Students should learn technology skills instead of cursive. Students now do most of their work on computers. Computers are faster and more efficient than writing, and most kids enjoy using technology more than they do writing. Time in school could be spent instead on teaching kids how to do research on computers. Also, adults don’t use much cursive in their daily life.”
