In this class, we will be reading, discussing, and implementing ideas from the book, 6+1 Traits of Writing, by Ruth Culham. This book will have the tools you need to assess students writing for the traits and for planning instruction (focus lessons and activities). This text will have detailed definitions of each trait, scoring guides, and sample student papers with running commentary. We will have the opportunity to interact with educators from all grade levels and subject areas along with having the opportunity to share many ideas that we can all use to better our students and classrooms. ** Please be sure to purchase the book ahead of time and read the Introduction- The Traits: A Vocabulary for Writers and Chapter 1- The Weave of Assessment and Instruction before our first class.
