Always Write: Critical Thinking Skills through 6 Traits Language | Alive and Learning |

The main goal of my Deep Student Thinking with the Writing Traits Workshop is to show what amazing things can happen when students take 6-trait and writing process vocabulary all the way to the analyze and evaluate level of Bloom's. The second biggest goal is to help teachers design some deep-thinking tools to introduce during those critical first weeks of a school year. Our Common Core State Standards absolutely expect our students to apply much deeper cognitive skills to their reading and writing, and a foundation for this type of thinking must begin early in the year, not late.
