All GAEC students learn to write in cursive for four specific reasons
The Development and strengthening of fine motor skills. The art of cursive writing has become increasing scarce and so are the fine motor skills of today's learners with the emergence of technology as the primary source of communication.
Cursive reinforces English language letters. By teaching our students handwriting and cursive specifically, our students are able to recognize lettering during developmental stages and produce clear work when submitting handwritten assignments.
Personalized signatures on legal documents are written in cursive lettering.
Cursive connects students to documents of the past. Learning this skill is essential when studying historical archives since original documents pre-20th century were all produced by hand.
