"Students were noticeably more able to carry out writing and revision tasks at the end of the instruction compared to the beginning of instruction.  Additionally, students in this academic year were more able to carry out these tasks than were students who did not receive the instruction last academic year."

​     ---Brian - 6th grade teacher

"I do feel that the procedures we used made the writing process easier for my students...In the past, little time had been spent on teaching specific skills."

     ---Karim - 7th grade teacher


"My son is a good student but was an average writer.  The difference in his writing in just two weeks was incredible.  My husband and I couldn't believe the improvement from his first essay to his last.  It was absolutely amazing."

   ---Cynthia - parent of an 8th grader

"My son took Dr. Sherman's writing class 5 years ago and still uses the strategies he learned back then.  We saw immediate improvement in his writing following the summer session and he continues to be a really good writer."

    ---Dave - parent of a current 10th (student of ours in 5th grade)

Here's what people are saying....


"After the third session, my brain just went [boom and opened up]."

     ---Philip - graduate student at Johns Hopkins

"Dr. Sherman, look what I wrote!  How am I doing this?" 
     ---Russell - 4th grade student 

"This method has helped me because now I know what to do when I am stuck.  It made writing faster and easier."

     ---Sophia - 6th grade student

"This was helpful because I didn't know how to revise my essays that well.  This method has changed the way I feel about writing."

    ---Michelle - 7th grade student

"[This method] made it easier for me to put my thoughts on the paper.  I [also] thought revising was kind of boring, but when I found out that it could make my stories better, I did a lot of revising."

     --Irina - 8th grade student
