    This book of writing lessons for the middle and high school student is excellent on two levels. As the student learns and practices the basics, and then more advanced skills of good writing, they also learn about three wonderfully virtuous historic figures: Mother Teresa, Abraham Lincoln, and St. Francis. The thought-provoking source materials provided about these three Christians will interest and challenge the student as he/she learns to effectively and concisely take notes from these source materials to serve as a basis for their own written work. With my eighteen years of teaching high school English to draw upon, I can authoritatively state that this is a valuable book to teach students how to become good, confident writers who keep portfolios of their work, and who analyze and improve their writings as they learn even more advanced techniques. The beauty of this book is that while taking the student through the steps to craft well-written summaries, creative stories from pictures, research reports, essays, reviews, and critiques, the student is also exposed to excellent written/spoken works that Lincoln, Mother Teresa, and St. Francis have either produced themselves or that have been written about them. What a wonderful combination!

Author/Artist Review

Author: Daniel K. Weber
Located in: Atascadero, California
Submitted: September 03, 2007

    Tell us a little about yourself.  Daniel Weber currently serves as Chaplain at the Atascadero State Hospital,while teaching part-time at Cal Poly. He holds an M.B.A. from Pepperdine University as well as an M.P.S. (Pastoral Studies) from Loyola University. He has had published a wide range of academic articles and holds four U.S. patents. He lives in Atascadero, California with his wife of 25 years, their two children and dog, Dixie. Throughout his career and life, Daniel has worked to improve his own character, committing himself to the ideal of servant leadership.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  We experience difficulty today in teaching key virtues to our youth. This book helps young people begin the process of writing, reading, critical thinking, and contemplation that leads to healthy character development. Virtues are the essence of the human spirit and the content of our character. We become the virtues we practice.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  This book follows the tested and proven process of "Teaching Writing: Structure and Style" as developed by the Institute for Excellence in Writing (IEW). Students not only improve their writing skills following the nine units of the IEW process, but also learn to think a bit more about their own character development and the importance of prayer, Holy Scripture, key virtues and solid relationships in their lives. Students learn that it’s never about me, it’s never about you - it’s always about us! The Grace of God works most abundantly in the spaces between us. Our character develops in community--in and through our relationships with others.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  I was diagnosed with cancer during the course of this project. Working on "Character-based Writing Lessons" gave me focus, purpose, and hope as I underwent treatment and recovered. Cancer became a blessing to my character too!

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  The lessons in this book are designed to help the student strengthen composition skills using readings from selections associated with the lives of Mother Teresa, Abraham Lincoln and St. Francis. I have tried to select stories, excerpts, and historical references that are both interesting and important. Mother Teresa, Abraham Lincoln, and St. Francis, all three, have profoundly inspired me in my life.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  May the person you become be for the glory of God! May our gracious Lord bless you and all your efforts abundantly, that you may grow in faith, hope, and love! Peace in Christ Jesus.
