We empower teachers with tools that help students write their futures


The Writing Revolution (TWR) aims to enable all students, especially those from historically marginalized communities, to become proficient writers, readers, and critical thinkers.

We train and support teachers and school leaders in implementing the Hochman Method©, an explicit set of evidence-based strategies for teaching expository writing.


We have a writing crisis.

Students universally struggle with poor writing. Overall, only 27 percent of students in both grades tested scored at or above the proficient level in 2011. The data also reveal some persistent achievement gaps. For instance, at the 12th-grade level, 9 percent of Black students and 12 percent of Latinx scored proficient or above, compared with 34 percent of white students.

Writing Proficiency

Less than 30 percent of students are proficient in writing


The COVID-19 pandemic-driven learning loss has affected virtually all students and caused students of color and students from low-income families to fall even further behind

No Preparation

71 percent of teachers indicate that they receive minimal to no preparation to teach writing


Writing can impose an overwhelmingly cognitive burden


Why is the
Hochman Method

The method builds from sentences to compositions and is embedded in curricula across all content areas and grade levels. Schools and districts report that implementation brings consistency. The Hochman Method strategies can be used in all grades and subject areas, allowing schools and districts to implement a common, coherent approach to writing instruction.

We provide teachers and school leaders with the tools to implement effective writing instructional strategies in all subjects
