"As a teacher-leader, I recommend Vicki Spandel's materials to fellow teachers, local, county, and state administrators, college professors, and student teachers. Her books, teaching guides, and podcasts never fail to impress educators from a wide variety of backgrounds and experience. Most importantly, her materials show students of all grade levels how to become stronger authentic writers."
- Barbara Andrews, A.C.Stelle Middle School, Calabasas, CA

It provides clear guidelines on helping students draft, assess, and revise their writing, as well as explicit criteria to show students precisely what they must do to succeed as writers in virtually any situation.

This is an excellent text chocked full of advice, checklists, models, and examples of student writing. For the Six Traits teacher, this book belongs in your collection of Six Trait materials.
The book offers sample essays with suggested scores on each of the six traits, ways to tailor the assessment and instruction to various grade levels, rubrics, and activities for test preparation. Creating Writers through Six Trait Assessment provides good footing in testing preparation.
This practical, application-based book is filled with instructional techniques, rubrics, guidelines, sample essays, trouble-shooting solutions, mini-lessons, great ideas, and so much more. This was a required text in one of my graduate courses and is now my favorite book on writing instruction. If I could give it six stars, one for each trait, I certainly would.
