This class seeks to stop that downward spiral by providing reasons why this skill is important to the brain, self-esteem, note taking, letter-writing, family history research, etc. Opportunities in a workshop setting will take place to polish up old skills or learn basic cursive skills, depending on the needs of class participants. Participants will be encouraged to practice at home 5 minutes a day and possibly find a pen-pal to practice with.
