The program is appropriate for grades K–12 in every content area, and its activities can be adjusted to varying difficulty levels and adapted for large classes, small groups, and tutorials.

What Makes Teaching Basic Writing Skills Different?

Teaching Basic Writing Skills focuses on forming a solid foundation in the skills most needed for school assignments. Its approach assumes that writing and thinking—and the organizational processes thinking involves—are tightly linked.

What Users are Saying

I have relied on Judith Hochman’s, Teaching Basic Writing Skills curriculum to support at risk students in writing for over 15 years. Initially, I sponsored small groups of select teachers to attend her training sessions and then purchased materials to support their work in the classroom. As word spread about their success, we increased the number of teachers and created a cadre of staff developers to offer additional support . . . I can assure you that Teaching Basic Writing Skills will be the number one intervention for writing that I will recommend to the over 275 schools in my care.
