Elaine Reid uses an overhead projector to teach cursive writing to her class at Cleveland PreK-6 School, Wednesday, Sept. 18, 2013, in Dayton, Ohio. In years gone by, penmanship helped distinguish the literate from the illiterate. But now, in the digital age, people are increasingly communicating by computer and smartphone.
