One of the ways that we often use personal writing is in communicating thoughts, concerns, ideas, and goals to those closest to us. In this journal, imagine that a friend, family member or personal acquaintance is thinking about returning to school to further his or her education or training.
Then, share what kind of personal document would be best for communicating this information. For example, would an email or a letter be more effective?
Once you have decided on a format, please write the personal document. What encouragement would you give him or her? Based on your own experience, what challenges might he or she face? What suggestions would you make about time management and setting goals?
