Keeping Handwriting Alive
Organized by: Sara LaPonte
Hi Everyone, My name is Sara LaPonte and I am currently studying for my Master's degree in Professional Writing. I would like to start raising money to fund the handwriting class I would like to start teaching at the local grammar school or library. It is becoming a habit in most schools to cut handwriting from the curriculum at an early stage for students. Instead they are learning how to become faster typists and intuitive computer users. This fundraiser is not to destroy these classes or to change someone's passion in computer science. This fundraiser is to keep handwriting alive. It is such an important aspect to the learning process. I have done research during my undergrad at Rutgers University on handwriting and the impact it has had on society. I have also interpreted this information through an artistic standpoint, remembering that handwriting is a form of expression. Any form of donation (including positive feedback!) is welcomed. Thank you for your support on the importance of handwriting.
