We all know the difference between block letters and cursive writing, right? If you somehow manage to find a pen (or pencil) and paper to actually write down something by hand, what would you prefer - printing (writing in block letters) or your regular writing (cursive writing)? Most of us would prefer just scribbling in our own regular writing. But I might want to write a message in capital letters if the message is for someone else, and I am not too sure if the other person will actually be able to read my handwriting. That happens, right?
Many people look to re-popularize great and monumental things from the past that have been instrumental in the progression of modern technology and human development. We often hear this saying: "Everything old is new again." This is clearly evident as we see car manufacturers going retro in their body styles, fashion trends rotating full circle, today has commercials are using many popular songs from artists of yesteryear and anything vintage is a collector has haven! Now-a-days, "rarity" is an asset. Some creative traditions like cursive writing should not be deemed as becoming completely blasé. Despite the fact that cursive writing lost its popularity due to the lack of demand and modern technology, why not sit down and take time to rediscover the elegance and personal satisfaction of what this invaluable talent has to offer. Who knows if cursive writing will become retroactive? You certainly would not want to be left in the dark if it does.
Children learn to creep and crawl in development (precursor skill to standing and walking). Those actions involve crossing all of your midlines and/or centering your weight accordingly - try it yourself where no one can see you (doing it slowly so you can feel the shifts/changes). Those midlines "relate" to the lined paper we use in school. The horizontal line is the top/bottom midline. Ever notice how some kids letters sit on top of the line or float above it rather than going below it? These are midline awareness problems. Everyone knows people who reverse b and d in printing - left/right midline awareness problems. [Note: Front and back do not relate to 2 dimensional work.] Children who have difficulty remembering b from d tend to use capital letters, even if it is in the middle of a word, because they do npt have to concentrate on which is which; spelling is hard enough to remember which letters make what sound and then put those letters in the correct order in the first place.
