Corbett Harrison: UW-Stout Online Class: Teaching and Assessing Writing with the 6-Traits

An Online Writing Traits Class We Recommend!

Looking for a summer learning experience that improves your skills as a writing teacher?  I recommend the following online course, which friend of WritingFix and Always Write--Dennis O'Connor--has helped coordinate this class for many years.  You simply can't maintain a functioning workshop environment for writing if students don't own the vocabulary of writing instruction, and the 6 Traits have been the academic language of choice we've used in my classroom for years!
