Corbett Harrison: An Online 6-Traits Writing Class We Recommend!

Corbett Harrison: An Online 6-Traits  Writing Class We Recommend! | AdLit | Scoop.it

Looking for a summer learning experience that improves your skills as a writing teacher?  I recommend the following online course, which friend of WritingFix and Always Write--Dennis O'Connor--has helped coordinate this class for many years.  You simply can't maintain a functioning workshop environment for writing if students don't own the vocabulary of writing instruction, and the 6 Traits have been the academic language of choice we've used in my classroom for years!

Writing Traits: Teaching the Skills of Word Choice
teacher-created resources and lessons...all focused on skills that make up the word choice trait

 

The trait of word choice is a complex trait that should be discussed, explored, and further developed every year that students learn to write in school; both kindergartners and high school seniors can be taught to think about developmentally appropriate skills that are associated with word choice. This page contains word choice lessons and resources that we consider appropriate for sharing with third graders and up. If you are working with primary writers and the six traits, be sure to visit WritingFix's 6 Traits and Primary Writing Homepage.

About WritingFix: Our Bibliography of Mentor Texts

About WritingFix: Our Bibliography of Mentor Texts | AdLit | Scoop.it

A Bibliography for Teachers & Librarians: There are a lot of published books that share lists of mentor texts for teaching writing; the book at right is one example. This page at WritingFix--we believe--is much more thorough than just about every book in print we've found. We've spent almost ten years creating the list of books below.
