About the OALN Webinar
The Ohio Adolescent Literacy Network is a standing committee of regional support specialists who are collectively responsible for supporting literacy initiatives in middle and high schools across the state. Rachel Daniels established the informal network in 2018. As the group’s size and influence grew, they received attention and support from State Support Team 3 who have invested in producing an 8-part webinar series in cooperation with Reading Ways.
Episode 7 with Toni-Ann Vroom
The Writing Revolution: Advancing Thinking Through Writing
This presentation will provide an overview of the Hochman Method, an evidence-based method of expository writing instruction that can be used in every grade and in all subjects. This instructional methodology enables students to master the skills that are essential if they are to become competent writers. In turn, those skills equip students to become better readers; communicate more effectively in writing and speaking; and, most importantly, elevate their thinking.
