LEAD 610 4-MAT Book Review Instructions

Pegues, Deborah S. Confronting Without Offending: Positive and Practical Steps to Resolving Conflict.

The 4-MAT REVIEW system is a way of responding to readings, lectures, and life experiences that requires the learner to interact with new ideas on several levels. 

Please use the following format in preparing 4-MAT Book Reviews:

  1. Abstract. Summarize what you have read,      boiling the book down into 400–600 words (no more than 2 pages). Prove you      comprehend the readings by writing a no-nonsense summary. The abstract is      not a commentary or listing of topics but rather an objective summary from      the reader’s viewpoint. Abstract equals “boiled down.” This section should      include a minimum of 2 footnotes*      to the text being reviewed. (*in      text citations if you are using APA style)
  2. Concrete Response. Get vulnerable! In no less than 250      words and no more than 1 page, relate a personal life experience that this      book triggered in your memory. Relate your story in first person,      describing action, and quoting exact words you remember hearing or saying.      In the teaching style of Jesus, this is a do-it-yourself parable, case      study, confession. You will remember almost nothing you have read unless      you make this critical, personal connection. What video memory began to      roll? This is your chance to tell your story and make new ideas your own. 
  3. Reflection. This      is the critical thinking part of the review (not critical in the sense of      negative, but in the sense of questioning). In no less than 250 words and      no more than 1 page, describe what questions pop up for you in response to      what you have read. Keep a rough-note sheet at hand as you read. Outsmart      the author by asking better questions than he/she raised in the book. Tell      how the author could have made the book better or more appealing to those      in your field of service. One way to begin this section is by stating what      bothered you most about the book. This is not a place to provide an      endorsement or affirmation of the book.
  4. Action. So what      are you going to do about it? In 400–600 words (no less than 1 page and no      more than 2 pages) provide 2 actions that describe what changes you are      going to make in your life, ministry, and/or work as a result of your      reading. Actions should be measurable and reveal a commitment to      specific time, specific people, and identified steps. Make sure the actions      are implemented between the time the review is submitted and Module/Week 8.      Discussion Board activity asks for you to reveal the results of one of      your actions.

APA style which includes title page, pagination, citations and Reference page.
