6-Traits Resources: Teaching Voice to Primary Students by Margaret McKanna

6-Traits Resources: Teaching Voice to Primary Students by Margaret McKanna | 6-Traits Resources | Scoop.it

When it comes to effective teaching and learning, my inclination is to keep it whole. This is especially true in areas of literacy for students whose skills are still developing. Vicki Spandel asks the question:"So why do we study the traits if they're all part of a whole?' and then she answers: "Concentrating on a particular trait helps us see writing through a certain window...helps us appreciate how that trait connects us to others

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Here's a terrific piece on voice from a great teacher Margaret McKanna. Margaret is a recent student in my online class: Teaching and Accessing Writing with the Six Traits.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Time is always the issue.  As a classroom teacher every lesson addressed multiple standards and objectives.  Teaching writing was also teaching reading, grammar, research, and critical thinking.

Always Write: Purchase Materials from my Teacher Workshops

Corbett Harrison:


These are resources from my classroom and my teacher workshops that I sell here on-line to fund this little website of mine.

I started out as just a little old Northern Nevada teacher-trainer in 1996. Many years later, I am proud to say that I have now presented teacher workshops and student demonstration lessons in seventeen different states. I have also sold materials from all my trainings to all 50 of the 50 United States, as well as to Canada, Great Britain, Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, Central America, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand.

At my face-to-face workshops for teachers, I freely share and discuss every resource that can be found on these various pages of my website. My work with the Northern Nevada Writing Project taught me this generosity. I have been given to countless times by amazing teachers, and so I freely give back to the teachers with whom I work directly.


Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Here's the chance to support Corbett's work and get great classroom tested writing materials at a very good price.
