About the Session

AUDIENCE: K-12 EDUCATORS, LITERACY LEADS AND ADMINISTRATORS ARE ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND.

This session provides an overview of the Hochman Method, an explicit set of specific writing strategies that teachers use in every grade and in all subjects, including ELA, social studies, science, world languages and math.  This evidence-based and proven instructional methodology enables students to master the skills that are essential if they are to become competent writers. In turn, those skills equip students to become better readers, to communicate more effectively in writing and speaking, and most importantly, to elevate their thinking.
