LUHE, I love that! What does it mean?
Road to Nowhere, that is partially how I get buy in for learning cursive: I tell them they can write faster and 'get it done with quicker .'
Of course, I am still struggling with legible block printing with some of them. It's not fashionable in education right now to spend time on learning any process of handwriting. Nor spelling. Because we now have spell-check. Not even kidding. The solution is keyboarding and spell-check with the powers that be currently.
By the way, parents nearly rioted when we told them at the beginning of the school year that there would be no spelling homework this year and it would be folded into the daily curriculum (cough, cough). I don't blame them. I wish they would call the Board of Ed. Maybe they'll listen to them because they certainly don't listen to us.
