We Teach How to Cultivate Habits for Writing Success in All Students
Buddinwriters Academy LLC aims to empower educators to cultivate habits of reading, thinking, and writing, and narrow the achievement gap between students in disadvantaged settings and students in more enhanced leaning environments.
We are an educational business dedicated to the teaching of effective written communication in students from grades K-12. We serve schools and parents by providing coaching and professional development services on how to use WTR and Habit to build strong literacy across disciplines and to increase performance in reading and writing among all students.
Buddinwiters Academy LLC utilizes the Writing to Response (WTR) process and principles of habit formation as a school-wide initiative to improve literacy across disciplines and improve students and school academic performance by writing in response to what they read. They provide oral or written responses that include summaries, analyses, evaluations and syntheses.

I was pleased with my child’s response to reading until I tried WTR with her. She was comfortable with summarizing, but once we got to the reaction stage, she began to express frustration. I realized then, that WTR is what my daughter needed to develop the skill and habit of responding to questions that go beyond the text.

My students have utilized Dr. Watts’ simplified method RID PWD ( Read, Identify, Determine, Plan, Write, Double check) of tackling test prompts. My regular students were just as effective as my advanced students in deciphering test prompts. It was amazing to see all my students experience the same level of success.
After two years of consistent use of WTR across all disciplines, our school experienced enough gains to make annual yearly progress. Dr. Watts conducts professional development workshops in which she engages teachers, simplifies concepts, and uses practical examples.

The workshops on teaching how to implement the WTR process were timely. The process really works well in motivating students on all educational levels. I have seen awesome improvements with my second and third grade students. They are summarizing and are preparing to react to what they read. The approach is simply amazing. Thank you Dr. Watts.
