Get ready to have fun, laugh, and learn a lot as we take a new look at the Six Traits of Writing and how perfectly they relate to new Common Core writing standards. I??ve gathered loads of incredible, classroom-proven tools that will not only get your students excited about writing but also boost their proficiency. And, I??ve created ready-to-use rubrics that align to each of the text types required by the Common Core State Standards to help students learn to assess, revise, and edit their own writing.

Because the new writing standards require students to write for extended periods of time as well as write on demand, I??ll reveal how to find time in your jam-packed day to get your students writing more and to give writing the time and attention it deserves in your 21st century classroom. Whether you??re new to the Six Traits or you??re already familiar with them, you??ll learn fresh strategies and approaches you can easily use to create a classroom full of confident and skilled writers.
