The Writing Revolution: A Guide to Advancing Thinking Through Writing in All Subjects and Grades by Judith Hochman and Natalie Wexler teaches a flexible writing method, called the Hochman Method, that can be taught across all grades and subject areas. In this dynamic book study, we will unpack the Hochman Method across five sessions. Teachers will leave each session with fresh insights on practical and high-leverage writing strategies and techniques. **NEW for 2022-23: Teachers will be asked to apply the learning and share samples of student work.** Grade-level and content-area teams are encouraged to attend together.

**Participants must purchase their own book.**

The Six Principles of The Hochman Method:

  • Students need explicit instruction in writing, beginning in the early elementary grades.
  • Sentences are the building blocks of all writing.
  • When embedded in the content of the curriculum, writing instruction is a powerful teaching tool.
  • The content of the curriculum drives the rigor of the writing activities.
  • Grammar is best taught in the context of student writing.
  • The two most important phases of the writing process are planning and revising.

Audience: K-12 teachers, ELA, Science, Social Studies, Reading Intervention teachers, Special Education, EL teachers
