"The Writing Revolution is the answer I've been looking for! It has given me a step-by-step approach for teaching children how to write well. It has helped many of my students become better writers by giving them skills and strategies that they can use throughout their lives."

Nicole, 5th Grade Teacher

"TWR's method has given me a foundation for structuring my lessons and a guideline for helping my students grow in their writing. I've witnessed many students advance as writers since implementing this method in my classroom."

Jacosta, 9th Grade English Language Arts Teacher

"By the end of the year, the majority of my class was successfully using the topic and concluding sentence strategies, but most importantly, choosing the strategy that best fit their purpose. Their writing became their own."

Jennifer, 6th Grade English Language Arts Teacher

"After ending up using a total mash-up of different writing programs for several years, learning this method really provided me with a fresh perspective. I became armed with several strategies and tools to help all of my learners! The concrete strategies are simple to understand, clearly explained, and totally manageable to implement."

Laura, 2nd Grade Teacher

"TWR has impacted my students in a profound way. It has given them the tools to organize their writing through outlines, sentence structure activities, and transition work."
