Can you read this? Did you take this class?


I was so proficient in this that I received a certificate at graduation! LOL!   Most kids don't even know what this is anymore.

  • i only knew what it was b/c my mom still uses it...have no idea how to read it tho!

    i wrote my last name on the board in cursive in a 6th grade classroom and had a few kids ask me what it "Mrs." is that hard to decipher in cursive!

  • No. They do not use it anymore louise. Funny thing is, I really can't read this anymore, but I can still write. We were taught to sit in front of the TV with a notebook and write. I used to do it for hours on end.

  • I didn't realize that shorthand was different than cursive- I thought they were the same thing
    so obviously- no, didn't know what it was and cannot read it!

  • I can read some of it. I took speed-writing in college and it took quite a bit from short-hand.
