HASH(0x9f2a2480) out of 5 stars 40 Reproducilbe Forms For Writing Oct. 22 2005
By Keri A. Simacek - Published on
Format: Paperback
Exactly what I was looking for as a 4th grade teacher using 6 Trait writing in my classroom. The rubrics are easy to use and modify. The "forms" inside make understanding 6 Traits for young writers easier.

HASH(0x9efbea2c) out of 5 stars A Time Saver for the Truly Busy Teacher June 16 2010
By Yvonne C - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This helpful book contains four, five, and six-point rubrics/scoring sheets as well as numerical and practice-paper scoring sheets; checklists for students to help them remember to include the required elements of the various genres of writing; Paper Clippers to attach to students' graded writings showing them which elements they remembered/forgot to include; and forms to help students with the prewriting processes. The Writing Modes Quick Reference will be particularly helpful to beginning writers: It explains where the various genres of writing are used (IE: descriptive writing is used in travel brochures, menus, etc.). Publishing checklists, grader/rater checklists, form containing activities to encourage writing at home, and forms to communicate with parents have also been included in the mix. Of the 40 forms, I think the prewriting form for persuasive writing may prove to be the most useful along with the Paper Clippers and the Cut-Apart Scoring Sheets. The latter will be helpful when students team up with their peer proofreaders to assess each other's drafts. Although not a must-have, for the truly busy teacher, this book is a time saver.

HASH(0x9f9cf1c8) out of 5 stars Not for 8th graders March 19 2008
By Lauralu - Published on
Format: Paperback
What I love about the 6 Traits is the accessibility across the grade levels. My initial experiences with 6 Traits was in the elementary school and I currently teach 8th grade. I have not found this resource to be helpful with older writers as most of the language is for young writers. With some of my students writing at the high school, even college level, it seems inappropriate. I use picture books for inspiration, but the checklists are too young. I will continue to collect 6 Traits materials as I found it is the best way to teach writing effectively.

I thought it would have more forms other than rubrics. If you are looking for a book full of rubrics this is a good book. I was looking for something different when I bought this book so was a little disappointed. I will use a few of the pages in this book but not my favorite.
