The perfect complement to its phenomenally successful parent text,Creating Writers, Fourth Edition, this new book provides clear guidelines on helping young students draft, self-assess, and revise their writing, as well as explicit criteria to show students precisely what they must do to succeed as writers in virtually any situationincluding state tests. nbsp; In practical and teacher-friendly terms, acclaimed author Vicki Spandel explains six-trait writing from the inside out, in terms teachers and their students can understand, and offers hands-on links to writing process and to reading, showing that for beginning students, hearing the traits in literature can be as important as expressing them through personally generated text. The text is designed to give practicing and new teachers a more in-depth understanding of the writing process and how it connects to the six traits, while encouraging them to continuously write with students and model their own personal writing process. A goldmine of activities, strategies, and lesson ideas make this text ideal for use in the K-3 classroom or as part of a study group. Reviewers consistently call it ldquo;a powerful resource for primary teachers,rdquo; but many teachers of older students have found it invaluable, as well, because it simplifies writing, giving struggling students of any age ready access to what has felt formidable and difficult. nbsp; nbsp;Written fornbsp;K-3 teachers.
