Writing Makes An Exact Man

According to Sir Francis Bacon, "Reading maketh a full man, conference a ready man, and writing an exact man." Writing about what one has read with attention adds meaning and clarity to one's work and one's life.

Therefore, it would behoove both principals and teachers to seek for ways to write, not only encourage their students to write. Some writing opportunities:
  • Handwritten letters and notes
  • Reflective journal
  • Dialogue journal
  • Articles for professional journals and/or newletters
  • Grants
  • Book (s)
  • Blogs
  • Letters to the Editor

Being an example of writing, educators can encourage students to write.
