Teaching writing to future generations is an important job for educators.
The Progoff Intensive Journal method allows for the improvement of
writing skills in many areas, including education, and has been sponsored by
a chapter of the National Writing Project, an organization whose goal is to
improve writing in America. The NWP reaches those who teach writing or use
writing in their teaching.
The Intensive Journal method helps prepare the educator to teach,
by allowing for self-discovery and awareness. Using selected exercises from
the Intensive Journal notebook, the educator can help the student
take a greater interest in writing, facilitating and establishing a fluency
with the written word. The method reveals the personal value that writing
has, producing self-understanding, insight, and a greater depth of
expression. Self-awareness is an integral aspect of education, and can be
fostered by the Intensive Journal method. It helps writers (both
educators and students) investigate various areas in a personal way,
exercising one’s expression, serenity, and self-exploration.
