Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"Traits of Writing:  The Complete Guide for Middle School is a tall drink of cool water for a pedagogically thirsty decade...  There's enough here to create, maintain, and renew a highly effective middle school writing program for years.  This is a mentor text for today's generation of teachers and those to come.  I can't imagine a more helpful and inspired book."
--Rick Wormeli, columnist for NSMA's Middle Ground and author of Meet Me in the Middle:  Becoming an Accomplished Middle-Level Teacher
"With this book, Ruth Culham demonstrates again her true understanding of learners and how to teach them to write.  She brings the same quality and direction to middle school that she has already brought to the elementary grades.  Our students have seen the benefits of her efforts.  She has given us the tools we need to make a lasting difference in their education."
--Paul Kinder, Superintendent of Schools, Blue Springs School District, Blue Springs, Missouri
