6 traits

Get the 6+1 traits of writing by Ruth Culham NOW.

Easy and interesting read...........makes great sense and best of all, for your situation...it will give you language to use when talking about writing and give you a base to fall back on.

I would also find a good structure to your organized writers workshop......status of the class, mini lessons, teaching the traits, and using read alouds as models of good writing!!

School\s writing program?

My school uses 6-traits and I like it. Writing expectations vary. There is the writing program (6-traits or other), but the teacher also has to be comfortable and familiar with the writing process. If I were interviewing, I'd talk a bit about the writing process that all children need to follow (brainstorm, first draft, revise, edit, publish), and then turn it back to them by asking, "What program does your school use?" Like another poster said, find a book you can reference or do a few Internet searches.

We use 6-trait, but also use Step-up to writing. Step-up gives students the information they need to understand how to organize their writing and gives you lesson ideas to really teach the six traits. These programs really work hand in hand very well. We have discovered that they fill in eachother's gaps quite nicely.

If you will buy the book The Most Wonderful Writing Lessons Ever, you will have a great start. After 20 years of teaching this is my favorite. You can get it online for around $10.00 to $15.00. It was written by Barbara Mariconda. She is one of the owners of Empowering Writers. Don't miss that training if you get a chance to go.
