Books, Lessons, Ideas for Teaching the Six Traits, Edited by Vicki Spandel
June Theme: Professional Books Related to Picture Books
With summer beginning for some teachers, and just around the corner for others, I thought I would take this month to post professional books that may be of use when using picture books in the classroom.
Books, Lessons, Ideas for Teaching the Six Traits: Writing in the Elementary and Middle Grades is a great complement to Ruth Culham’s book, 6+1 Traits of Writing: The Complete Guide. This book is a compilation of great books to use to teach the Six Traits of Writing. Spandel provides a summary of each book and a lesson or activity related to teaching the trait with the book.
If you are unfamiliar with teaching The Six Traits of Writing or would like a refresher, I recommend reading 6 + 1 Traits of Writing: The Complete Guide (Grades 3 and Up) for the theory behind the Six Traits, and then using the practical Books, Lessons, Ideas for Teaching the Six Traits: Writing in the Elementary and Middle Grades to conduct relevant lessons.
