The following are brief samples of teachers embedding our strategies in their classrooms. These clips demonstrate how the strategies can be embedded into content. The Hochman Method is scaffolded to become more rigorous over time. Sentence strategy work is reinforced even when students have progressed to paragraphs and compositions.

A 2nd grade class uses pronouns and conjunctions to combine sentences.

Sixth grade students use a Hochman Method strategy to summarize an article they read about the Crusades.

A 7th grade teacher uses a subordinating conjunction activity to assess students’ comprehension of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.

During their turn and talk, a 10th grade ELL history class studying Gandhi practices an appositive activity.
