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.
