Session Detail

Book Study: Writing for Thinking and Learning

In this training, we will be studying the book: "The Writing Revolution: A Guide to Advancing Thinking Through Writing in All Subjects and Grades". Many teachers, across all content areas, lament about the quality of student writing.  This is important because quality writing supports thinking and development of content knowledge.  The book explores the ways that we can change practices in the classroom leading to better writing and thinking. "The Writing Revolution" (TWR) provides a clear method of instruction that you can use no matter what subject or grade level you teach. The model, known as "The Hochman Method", helps weak writers become strong communicators through use of targeted feedback to build writing skills. There is a strong link between writing and many other literacy skills. This method supports development of deeper comprehension, organization/study skills, speaking and analytical capabilities. Writing, using this technique, weaves writing instruction with content instruction and helps student improve the craft through “manageable chunks” and targeted practice to improve not only writing but deeper learning of content.
