Overview


Why has the 6+1 TRAIT model had such a tremendous impact on writing instruction? Because it works. It allows teachers to pinpoint students’ strengths and weaknesses in ideas, organization, voice, word choice, sentence fluency, conventions, and presentation, and focus instruction. Now Culham turns her expert eye to our youngest students. Like her groundbreaking guide for grades 3 and up, her new book contains scoring guides, sample papers, and focus lessons for each trait, but framed to address K–2 teachers’ needs! For use with Grades K-2.

Finally a resource for teaching writing that provides concrete strategies and exemplars of how to encourage a student's creativity AND to help them to develop solid skills in conventions of writing. Their website is great - lots of extra blackline masters and available tools (I'm a huge fan of their preprinted sticky notes because they help ME to focus on what I'm marking on any given round of evaluation). Culham made me feel excited to teach writing again, and for that I'm profoundly grateful for this book.
