Is cursive writing dead?

A single sentence, uttered in the trial of George Zimmerman for the shooting of teenager Trayvon Martin, has catapulted an issue into the national spotlight.

When asked if she could read a letter in court, witness Rachel Jeantel, her head bowed, murmured with embarrassment, "I don't read cursive," according to court testimony.

Is it any surprise that cursive -- the looped, curvaceous style of handwriting that's been a mainstay of education for generations -- is all but dead?

it will be tempting to throw away original documents and go to computerizied everything. it will be difficult to prove that something hasn't been altered.... cursive will never be dead.
children can learn cursive and learn computer skills.
so a witness is not able to read something in court, ya, helpless, that's what we are becoming.
teach the next generation how to plant a seed, build compost, write with their own hands and build with their own hands... its a good thing!

Good post! I think I will take to using cursive more than I have been.

lefthandedness is not an easy thing. never know which baseball glove to grab, get the rotten scissors that are loose at the joints, and more prone to tripping over oneself.....but often left handers are brilliant, so Christopher, you might have a sloppy paper, but a sharp mind, I'm sure. Good day!

Actually, Chris, it shows that English is an unblessed written language. We are all suppose to be using Hebrew which is written from right to left! Then all these right-handed people can have smeary papers when they do cursive. Hmm, there might not even be a cursive in Hebrew.

Good thing we don't submit comments at SermonAudio in cursive writing!

Oh boy.

Yeah, cursive writing certainly wasn't Invented with leftys in mind. In fact, overall, it's a right handed world that us minorities have had to adjust to and learn to improvise. Strange thing is that I throw, eat, bat, etc, right handed, but writing is all lefty. Rather than comparing myself to Cain or wondering if I'm a homosexual, I, instead, throw myself into the creative catagory.

Amen Chris! the typewriter must have been invented by a left-handed person. Manny if you need to relearn cursive writing here's an example for you! File:Cursive.svg

For Lefties, it needs to die a speedy death, but there are pockets of people out their that still support the stuff, and I think it is a fine thing to teach -- girls.

I can read it, but I tried writing something in it a while ago and realized I forgot how to write a lot of the letters, so it ended up part written, part printed letters.

I'm a lefty (only when writing) and have always printed. Cursive writing forces me to drag my palm through the ink, while printing, well, you know, write one, lift off momentarily, than write another.
