Dr. Webster summarizes his approach:
"Following my usual procedure, I give a diagram with short notes, followed by a model composition. There are three ways to write a descriptive paragraph and after this lesson was taught all of my students had to follow one of the models. No more random descriptions. Following a definition of a dialogue set, rules of structure, style, and mechanics come before a model. The flashback paragraph follows a similar pattern, first a very few rules and then the models. It is only advanced because it is new. Writers of any level, grades four to university can do it."
