What Happened to Penmanship?
Gray, Dorothy; Gray, Karen
National Middle School Association (NJ3), Middle Ground v8 n4 p29 Apr 2005
In this electronic age, handwriting seems to have lost its place in America's classrooms. But while today's students do use the computer for many projects, ultimately they need to have legible handwriting--for employment applications, loan applications, formal social correspondence, note taking, and test taking. Here, the authors call for a renewed focus on penmanship in schools.
