Format: Paperback
I started teaching high school english this year and ordered this book because our district uses the 6 traits to asses the students' biannual writing tests. I decided I should teach them what they'd be tested on...
This book has really taught me a lot about using the traits. Each chapter is very in depth and has good examples. There are sample lesson plans and suggestions on ways to emphasize each of the traits.
I like the traits because it's a great way to break writing into manageable parts. I'm not just telling my students they got a "C" on a paper. Instead, I'm telling them they wrote a paper that has some strengths and some weaknesses. Further, I can tell them where the weaknesses are and what I think they should do to improve it.
But, maybe the best thing is that I am teaching them to score each other's papers and it guides their thinking and scoring. There's a companion book of worksheets and other reproducibles that is almost a must have because it includes rubrics and scoring sheets for students to use.
My only wish is that there was a separate book for secondary students. The standards for writing are different. But, even still, this book does cover secondary teaching and I find it very useful.
I highly recommend this book if you want to teach your students to be better writers.

I am a Language Arts Specialist who teaches writing and language at the elementary level. When our district adopted the 6 Trait Writing/Scoring process this year, many teachers were skeptical and confused. This book clears it all up! Not only does it break down each trait (explaining what it is and why it is important), but it gives lots of examples of lessons that can be used to teach each trait. The book also includes sample student papers for you to score using a provided 6 Trait scoring guide. You can then flip the page to see what how the authors would score that paper and why. This is a wonderful book, and a must-have for any educator using the 6 Traits. After seeing my copy, I convinced my principal to buy 7 additional copies for the school (amazon.com must love me)!

Ruth Culham's text is easy to use, clear and concise, and certainly a companion volume to Vicki Spandel's book. I have used it to teach graduate courses in writing and teachers like it very much.

Format: Paperback
Without question, this is the most complete, dependable book on teaching writing according to the traits. It's made a real difference in the way I assess, teach, and talk about writing to my students, as well as the way they talk about writing to one another. Most important, my students enjoy writing. They see value in it. And it shows in their finished products. Thank you Ruth Culham for creating such a useful, well-researched, well-written tool.
