Overview

Many school professionals, whether on the job or preparing for a career in education, overlook the number and complexity of communication tasks routinely required on the job. They frequently are in the process of writing something, be it a memo, letter, report, news message, agenda, or minutes to a meeting. And they often must deliver presentations to parents, community groups, school boards, conventions, and academic conferences. But how are these professionals to prepare for such specialized speaking and writing requirements? That's what this book is for. This book acts as an easy-to-follow, easy-to-use desk reference, resource guide, and sourcebook for the kinds of writing commonly required by teachers today. The focus throughout is on contemporary educational challenges and clear, effective, and purposeful written communication. It contains 24 letter models, 11 memo models, eight report models, seven community news message models, never before compiled in one book. Educational administrators, teachers, educational personnel, and education students.
