Why is Learning Cursive: Handwriting Practice Workbook for Teens an important addition to your teen’s curriculum? According to a 2013 New York Times article, “Learning to write in cursive is shown to improve brain development in the areas of thinking, language and working memory. Cursive handwriting stimulates brain synapses and synchronicity between the left and right hemispheres, something absent from printing and typing. As a result, the physical act of writing in cursive leads to increased comprehension and participation. The College Board found that teen students who wrote in cursive for the essay portion of the SAT scored slightly higher than those who printed.”
These cursive writing worksheets are perfect for helping teens improve cursive penmanship. Learning Cursive: Handwriting Practice Workbook for Teens is a great resource for the history and language arts classroom.
