Train your students to become better writers with this 6-trait method of creative writing! 25 weeks of mini-lessons focus on ideas, organization, word choice, sentence fluency, and voice, as well as the 6th trait, conventions. Each week focuses on a specific skill within the primary trait and a convention skill. Divided between the teacher's guide section and the student worksheets, this is an easy to follow course set up for maximum teaching efficiency. With two facing pages per week's lesson, reduced student pages have the answers overlaid, and are surrounded by each day's activities for an all-in-one teaching guide; the student worksheets for the week follow the teacher's guide pages. 160 reproducible pages, softcover, Grade 8.
