In the past, handwriting was taught as a precursor to reading and spelling.

I remember writing in a Big Chief notebook, holding a chubby pencil, trying my best to make the curves and lines of the letters just right. When I attended elementary school, the teacher devoted at least forty-five minutes to handwriting each day....   [tags: Education, elementary education]

The writer argues that educators should let students decide on the subject that they are more interested to learn, this would open up possibilities for the student to excel in his academic environment as well as his own interests....   [tags: Education, Teacher, High school, School]
