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

Teaching Basic Writing Skills is clear, useful and effective. Dr. Hochman gives teachers and administrators material they can use immediately when they go back to their schools. The feedback on her presentations has been universally positive in both shorter and longer formats. I am delighted that a substantial group of educators, including many administrators, have been introduced to this wonderful program. I use it myself!
