Teaching the Traits: How to Target Writing Instruction in Your Classroom


Friday, September 18, 8:30am – 3:30pm

Even after decades of research, using the 6+1 Traits of Writing is still the best way to develop young writers and help them grow. This interactive workshop will provide training in the traits as well as teaching strategies for each category that you can use in your classroom. So whether you've never been officially trained, or if you just need a refresher, join us for a day filled with reading, writing, learning, and fun!
