6 Traits for Dummies
LOL Is there such a book? I am really trying to dig into this and have other resource books but I just can't seem to sink my teeth into how to teach these traits on a daily basis.

I also use Daily 5 but need to teach the Traits during our Writer's Workshop time.

Any help or references to previous threads would be greatly appreciated :)

I'd start with ideas and move from there. Utilize mentor texts....print up student rubrics and have the kids grade the mentor text to see if they are similar or not.
