Publish or Perish--The Educator's Imperative: Strategies for Writing Effectively for Your Profession and Your School.
Glatthorn, Allan A.
This book guides education professionals through the basics of the writing process, empowering them with the tools to create and enhance their own professional submissions and writings. It uses a conversational tone to convey and outline specific writing strategies for contributions to research journals, articles, op-ed pieces, manuscripts, literature reviews, theses, funding proposals, and internal organizational writing. Key features of the book include: finding a topic; correctly identifying the audience; choosing the appropriate forum; revising and editing; working with editors and publishers; and maximizing use of the Internet and other technological tools. It is divided into 20 concise chapters, grouped under the following 6 parts: Getting Started; Mastering the Writing Processes; Writing for the Profession; Writing in Academic Settings; Writing in the Organization; and Conclusion. The book concludes that six big ideas bring together the separate recommendations in the chapters: Become a published writing professional; Think synergistically; Write about what you know; Use the writing process flexibly; Know your audience and write to and for it; and Analyze the medium.
