In math or business , i always involve students to the right way to save their information , for almost decade , I always hold my note book with me , i wrote down almost every thing , even on holidays i write the date and note : holiday .
Its not hard to write but its easy to forget , specially in teaching , you can meet a student how likes a football team , specific color , country . Writing this sounds silly !!!! Will by the time you will have the right statistic then it might help a lot on the right situation.
also , writing the suitable method or technique in teaching , by the time i found a great suitable method and start to upgrade it . “ sound complicated !!!”
taking with parents need data , statistic , proof . All of that depends on writing skill , by time it will be a habit .
finally , writing down will make your history , your story , that can be review and evaluate your skill , progress .
hope that helps , keep safe .
