Tutorial Books For Educators About Hacking Writing Skills & Assessment Launched

Times 10 Publications, one of the most trusted names in professional development in the US, is turning their focus to writing skills.

Identifying a problem in the way that students are generally taught to write - and to think about writing - in schools across the country, Times 10 Publications has commissioned a radical rethink with their book ‘Hacking the Writing Workshop: Redesign with Making in Mind’. This book has been authored by Angela Stockman, an experienced classroom teacher, educational consultant, and literacy and writing expert.

Times 10 Publications’ book builds upon findings from the latest NoRedInk survey. The educational providers surveyed over 60,000 American students and found that writing confidence - which starts low - drops 5.03% from late elementary school to middle school. It then drops another 4.74% as students progress from middle school to high school.

What this means is that the average American fourth grader is roughly 13% more confident in their writing than the average high school senior.

With writing a critical skill for success in later life, and writing confidence just as key, Angela Stockman is on a mission to change the way teachers think about and teach writing in their classrooms. In particular, her book is guided by an ethos of writing as making, which she hopes can positively transform students’ outcomes.

The book has been developed based on Stockman’s experience as a classroom teacher and visiting schools across the country. In response to what she has learned about writing, she has created a host of easy-to-implement structured activities and practical tools for teachers.

Times 10 Publications is confident that ‘Hacking the Writing Workshop: Redesign with Making in Mind’ will both improve students’ writing skills and their confidence in writing. Moreover, they believe it can more broadly help students to learn and improve the learning experience.

Times 10 Publications has included the book in their popular professional development HACK Learning Series.

Dave Gray, the founder of XPLANE and the author of ‘The Connected Company, Gamestorming, and Liminal Thinking,’ said, “Good writing is good thinking. This is a book about how to think better, for yourself and with others.”
