Episode #13: The Death of Handwriting?! Say it Isn't So!

Episode #13: The Death of Handwriting?! Say it Isn't So!

Lucky episode #13 is here and I'm talking with my friend Gretchen Purcell Straczewski. She shared an awesome Freakonomics radio podcast with me a while back, and we are breaking it down for you and screaming "Long live handwriting!"

We also talk about the theory and value of Montessori education, our own experiences with handwriting, text-speak, and what type of legacy we can leave for future generations in this technology-driven world.

Here are the show notes! Tons of great info:

—Traditionally, most Montessori schools teach cursive writing instead of print, but some (including ours) had moved to teaching print first. Interestingly, our school has decided to move back to teaching cursive first beginning next year! Full coverage of the debate in the Montessori community here:
