When my neighbor sends us a letter, she writes in beautiful fine print cursive, that I can not read at all. That has motivated me to research the debate on cursive writing, whether or not it should be taught anymore. Cursive writing should be taught in schools because it has a positive effect on communication, history, and personal development. First, schools should teach cursive writing because it promotes good communication. Some think, since most assignments are now done on computers kids should spend more time learning typing rather than cursive.

Cursive is very important in your life and you might not see that. some people don’t think that cursive should still be tot because we have electronics now but I think we still need it. The first Cursive is important is because cursive is useful for when you have to turn in a paper in time.
There was two distinctive writing styles that was taught in my English class. The critique help me understand the writing styles that were trying to be taught to me more efficiently. Having a better understanding eventually led to me having better grades on my essays. I also could apply the things I learned from the critique to other things other than the essays we wrote in class. It also helped better my presentation skills and analyzation skills.
Everyone has been handed homework. Most people have begrudgingly completed it under the assumption that it would help them practice and study -- an assumption that those hours of hard work spent after school would be useful; an assumption which is now being proved false. In fact, newly emerging evidence indicates that homework must be regulated because it actually has few proven academic benefits and can actually hurt the well-being of the students. Believe it or not, new studies indicate that homework has not shown any benefit for students academically. Many studies have been conducted on this subject, and most of the recent ones show no correlation between homework and academic success.

With my current drafting process, I write my entire essay, read what I have written and add a little bit more if something comes to mind. I came into English, with very poor writing techniques. One of the reasons that probably caused me to not get full grades on essays in school is because my first draft is what I would submit, rather than reviewing and editing it to improve it. Something I take great pride in is my grammar and spelling. Although I sometimes
Many articles and studies show that handwriting improves memory. For example in the article National Pen ® it states “Handwriting notes helps retain knowledge more so than typing” also in the article Scientific American® “ In each study, however, those who wrote out their notes by hand had a stronger conceptual understanding and were more successful in applying and integrating the material than those who used took notes with their laptops.” These pieces of evidence show that writing on paper enhances memory because National Pen and Scientific American had studies that prove
The skills that I have learned has dramatically improved those letters, allowing them to appear more professional. In the past, I would search for ways to write a decent paper; now I have the skills to perform my own paper without having to rely on having assistance from someone else. It takes me a little while to develop a starting point, but once I have the first sentence, my words come to mind much quicker. I have also caught myself listening to the words that people speak instead of listening to what they are speaking of. I have improved on my speaking with the public because of this class.
I am the kind of student that usually sits in the back of a classroom because I feel more safe and comfortable. However, I decided to sit in the front to see how it would effect my listening abilities. As a short person, the first thing I noticed was it was a lot easier to take notes because I was easily able to see the projector, unlike in the back. I was able to write my notes a lot faster and easier since I wasn’t constantly squinting and adjusting to see the projector. It was also a lot easier to listen since I was able to hear my professor talking a lot more loud and clearly.
