J.B. Webster, Ph.D.

The writing system developed by Dr. Webster spans more than half a century of classroom implementation and development. From a one-room log schoolhouse in Northern Saskatchewan teaching fifty-five students in grades one through ten, to training Ph.D. candidates at prestigious universities, Dr. Webster brings a rare breadth of experience, wisdom and simplicity to the discipline of writing.
