Zane-Bloser handwriting recommended

April 1, 2014

Out of concern for the handwriting abilities of today’s students, a 23-member Oconee School District panel recommends the adoption of a curriculum that stresses cursive writing skills. Only a few years ago the cursive style of writing, with its flowing strokes and rounded angles, was on the wane in Oconee public schools. But now a district handwriting team will ask the county school board on April 14 to adopt the Zaner-Bloser handwriting curriculum for use in kindergarten through fifth grade classes. But Lauren Harrison warns cost is a factor. The English, Language and Arts specialist says public school educators have noticed a decrease of the focus on handwriting instruction—partly because the state no longer funds instructional materials.
