Times 10 Publications has commissioned their basic skills series in response to the latest international rankings from the OECD Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), which reflect that the US still measures lower than many comparable countries for student outcomes in the basic fields of learning. The publishers recognize that this is a signal that some of the most essential skills are not being successfully imparted to students, writing being one of them.
As such, Angela Stockman’s book encourages a rethink of the way that writing is taught in classrooms throughout the country. In particular, she advocates for a new pedagogical approach that is centered on writing workshops.
She believes it is essential that young writers are encouraged to see the practical applications of various types of writing and to gain confidence and joy through their writing experiences.
