Creating Writers: 6 Traits, Process, Workshop, and Literature, 6/e, truly puts the six traits of writing in context, showing how they are best taught—within writing workshop and as a way of enriching writing process by combining the elements of traits, literature, workshop, and process. Written by the pioneer of 6-trait writing, this edition organizes all materials by trait, features new one-page writing guides, and offers an increased emphasis on literature, connecting writing to reading as never before.

New to the Sixth Edition:

 

Easy-to-follow organizational design groups all papers, writing guides, literature, and lessons pertaining to a given trait in one chapter.

 

Expanded discussion of writing workshop and process (Chapter 2) shows how to teach the six writing traits within a meaningful context.

 

Increased emphasis on literature truly connects reading and writing with more titles, expanded annotations, and a list of exemplary trade books ideal for teaching informational writing.

 

New one-page writing guides simplify assessment, encourage self-evaluation, and display traits in a flexible yet consistent way across a variety of formats, including Teacher Writing Guides, Informational Writing Guides, Early Guides (for primary writers), and Leap-the-River Writing Guides for Students.

 

Improved collection of student writing samples includes over 80 exemplary samples that span a variety of grade levels, abilities, and genres (such as narrative, informational, and persuasive).

   

New lessons that emphasize modeling show teachers how and what to model (including many examples of revision).

 

Clear links between the six traits and the Common Core Standards for Writing provide teachers assurance that their instruction is in alignment with these standards.

 

An extensive discussion of technology (Chapter 8) expands our twenty-first century definition of writing to include communication forms like PowerPoint, audio, and video.

 

Revised chapter on quality assessment (Chapter 12) details ways to make both large-scale and classroom writing assessment more quality-driven, student-centered, and useful.

 

A closer look at genre (Chapter 9) examines Purpose and Audience, showing how and why genre might be considered an additional trait of successful writing.

 

Expanded interactive Questions & Activities expand teachers’ skills, stimulate their thinking, and build a strong sense of community when used in a study group or teacher preparation classroom.

 

New Author's Notes throughout the text speak directly to readers, citing additional resources, and suggesting lesson adaptations, book recommendations, and ways of differentiating instruction.

From the Back Cover:

 

Creating Writers: 6 Traits, Process, Workshop, and Literature, 6/e

Vicki Spandel

 

 

This one-of-a-kind book combines the elements of traits, literature, workshop, and process into one seamless presentation focused on creating successful writers.

 

More than any other book on the market today, Creating Writers: 6 Traits, Process, Workshop, and Literature, 6/e, truly puts the six traits of writing in context, showing how they are best taught—within writing workshop and as a way of enriching writing process. Written by the pioneer of 6-trait writing, this edition organizes all materials by trait, features new one-page writing guides, and offers an increased emphasis on literature, connecting writing to reading as never before. It also provides a clear link between the six traits and the Common Core Standards for Writing and presents new lessons, engaging classroom activities, suggestions for using technology, and an expanded collection of student writing sure to promote lively discussions.  

 

The text itself is well-written, and in my opinion Spandel does not waste words.  As I read through the book, I found myself hanging on to her every word. 

-  Jane Feber, Retired Language Arts Teacher, Jacksonville, FL

 

 

This book is frequently helpful to me as a classroom teacher. Writing lessons in our classrooms look different every year, every day. Our lessons depend on the needs of our individual students.  I am always looking to CW for new ways to help my kiddos become joyful writers. I so appreciate Spandel’s warm and inviting style—she speaks to me.

- Judy Mazur, 5th Grade Teacher, Buena Vista Elementary School, Walnut Creek, CA

 

 

Spandel provides more than just theory or just strategies; rather, she combines both theory and practice within a flexible framework that my candidates can use to approach writing instruction in a structured — but not prescribed — manner.  Spandel’s approach helps my students see ways to synthesize literature, reading, and writing instruction in a meaningful fashion.

- Kristina J. Doubet, Professor, Department of Middle and Secondary Education, James Madison University, Harrisonburg, VA
