Cursive Writing Workshop Offered At Brevard Community Church - Brevard, NC


October 30, 2017

What has happened to cursive handwriting? Is it obsolete? In this age of technology, is it justifiable to spend time and effort to learn cursive handwriting?

Writing in cursive improves letter recognition, spelling, reading and composition with expression. Cursive writing is beneficial for those with language learning differences in writing, reading and spelling.

Cursive writing also is a connection to the past. Without this skill, people would not be able to read the original texts of the founding documents, grandparents’ letters or family records.

A cursive writing workshop will be held on Saturday, Nov. 18, from 8:30 a.m. until noon at Brevard Community Church. The cost of $40 includes all materials, pastries and beverages.

The presenter is Wendi Adair, director of Augustine Literacy Project-Brevard. Adair is an Orton-Gillingham trained instructor. She will present the importance of cursive writing and the relationship of writing and brain function. Instruction will include topics of posture, slant, grip, formation of letters and specific techniques.
