A question I am often asked is about the importance of penmanship and handwriting. I have seen many studies that are able to answer this question much better than I will in a blog post. Let me just say, I am grateful that in Ontario, handwriting is back as a focus in the grade 3 curriculum but I am sad that so many students have missed this important skill for the past few decades that it wasn't as much of a focus in our language curriculum.
