The Writing Revolution: A Guide to Advancing Thinking Through Writing in All Subjects and Grades

By Judith C Hochman, Natalie Wexler

"HELP! My Students Can't Write!"

Why You Need a Writing Revolution in Your Classroom and How to Lead It.

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, also known as The Hochman Method, has demonstrated, over and over, that it can turn weak writers into strong communicators by focusing on specific techniques that match their needs and by providing them with targeted feedback.

Insurmountable as the challenges faced by many students may seem, TWR can make a dramatic difference. And the method does more than improve writing skills. It also helps:

  • Boost reading comprehension
  • Improve organizational and study skills
  • Enhance speaking abilities
  • Develop analytical capabilities

TWR is as much a method of teaching content as it is a method of teaching writing. There's no separate writing block and no separate writing curriculum. Instead, teachers of all subjects adapt the TWR strategies and activities to their current curriculum and weave them into their content instruction.

But perhaps what's most revolutionary about the TWR method is that it takes the mystery out of learning to write well. It breaks the writing process down into manageable chunks and then has students practice the chunks they need, repeatedly, while also learning content.
