Author Requests Help on Updating Book

My plan is to write three new chapters for each trait. We will then make it part of the online version, allowing teachers to select the chapters they want the students to read. Perhaps students could even make their own individual choices. With more role models, the book will be more diverse and contemporary.  We also hear from individuals around the globe.  I heard from the government of Dubai last week, 2 schools in China, several schools in Australia and a South African school.  Do you think these students want to read about Americans weeks after week? So, think globally, think diversity.

I have been doing a ton of research, but you’ll have viewpoints that can make this a more-rounded book. Remember, this book is written for the next generation, not for adults. You don’t have to have a person for every slot. I am really looking for good suggestions, particularly from those who have read the book. Please write to me at jhoedel@characterandleadership.com or leave a comment below. Thank you.

  1. Temple Grandin – Great movie about her life that is a must see. Temple is autistic and overcame her challenges to earn a BS, MS, PHD, become a college professor, revolutionize cattle handling systems, and become a renowned speaker and advocate for autism. She accomplished all of this while growing up in a time where autism was not understood and most autistic children were institutionalized for life. Amazing example of perserverence, desire, and several other traits.
