Changing Lives One Sentence at a Time

TWR provides teachers at all grade levels with the capacity to deliver comprehensive writing instruction in every subject: English, social studies, math and science, as well as world languages.

TWR’s evidence-based strategies ensure that all students at all levels can produce clear, coherent, unified, and structured writing. Armed with those strategies, students become better readers, communicators and most importantly, critical thinkers.

We Believe That Writing Must Be:

  • Explicitly Taught
  • Scaffolded
  • Consistently Reinforced


  • All Grades
  • All Subjects
  • Embedded In Content
  • Evidence-based


  • Clear, Coherent, Fluent Writing
  • Critical Thinking
  • Content Knowledge
  • Reading Comprehension
  • Oral Language Skills

How it works

“The Hochman Method equips teachers across content areas with concrete strategies to improve students’ ability to write varied, complex sentences and to structure their ideas coherently in paragraphs and compositions. In DC Public Schools, we have seen students become better, more confident writers.”
