1 October marked the beginning of MGCI’s four-week series of cursive writing classes. These workshops are directed towards those who want to improve their English cursive writing and reading skills. The class has been receiving instruction from Ms. Wilkins, the staff member running the series of classes. Ms. Wilkins shared her motivations with The Reckoner. “I find that there are some students at Marc Garneau who can’t read or write cursive writing so I would like to give them the opportunity to learn how to do so before leaving high school.”
“I took this class to gain a better understanding of the English language and to write better.” said Eslamawdin Fazli, a Grade 12 student. He added that these classes were helping him improve his writing skills.
The Cursive Writing workshop is a successful initiative, receiving much positive feedback from its participants.
Maliha Amin, a Grade 10 student at Marc Garneau, thoroughly enjoys learning English and agrees that these classes have been helping her not only to read and write in cursive, but to improve her fluency as well.
Amin commented: “The teacher speaks to us in English and we use English a lot.” According to Maliha, the classes have been having a positive impact on her English speaking and writing skills.
The workshops will be held for the next two Tuesdays from 3:30 – 5 pm in room 205, and snacks are provided.
