The Trait Lady Speaks Up
Culham, Ruth
Educational Leadership, v64 n2 p53-57 Oct 2006
The acknowledged expert on the 6+1 traits of writing explains what the traits are and what they are not: The traits are not a curriculum; they are part and parcel of the writing process; they are a model, not a program; they are not a prepackaged replacement for teaching writing; and they are the language of the writing workshop. The author includes a classroom example to show how teachers can use the traits when they conference with a student on a piece of writing. (Contains 1 figure.)
