Those who know me know I have quite a pen collection and enjoy using them. However, students cringe whenever I “dazzle” them with cursive during instruction. Truth be told, my print is less illegible than my cursive. I chose those words carefully. For some time I operated under the belief that cursive was better for the brain. After reading this article I see a new, yet familiar, conclusion reached by academics: results are mixed.
So, cursive is good. Print is good. As to which is better? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. In either case, writing is good for your brain. I encourage readers of this blog to write a letter (pen, paper, envelop, stamp) to someone. It is good for your brain.
