Creating Writers: 6 Traits, Process, Workshop, and Literature
Creating Writers: 6 Traits, Process, Workshop, and Literature, 6/e, truly puts the six traits of writing in context, showing how they are best taught-within writing workshop and as a way of enriching writing process by combining the elements of traits, literature, workshop, and process. Written by the pioneer of 6-trait writing, this edition organizes all materials by trait, features new one-page writing guides, and offers an increased emphasis on literature, connecting writing to reading as never before. It also provides a clear link between the six traits and the Common Core Standards for Writing and presents new lessons, engaging classroom activities, suggestions for using technology, and an expanded collection of student writing sure to promote lively discussions. New to the Sixth Edition: Easy-to-follow organizational design groups all papers, writing guides, literature, and lessons pertaining to a given trait in one chapter. Expanded discussion of writing workshop and process (Chapter 2) shows how to teach the six writing traits within a meaningful context. Increased emphasis on literature truly connects reading and writing with more titles, expanded annotations, and a list of exemplary trade books ideal for teaching informational writing. New one-page writing guides simplify assessment, encourage self-evaluation, and display traits in a flexible yet consistent way across a variety of formats, including Teacher Writing Guides, Informational Writing Guides, Early Guides (for primary writers), and Leap-the-River Writing Guides for Students. Improved collection of student writing samples includes over 80 exemplary samples that span a variety of grade levels, abilities, and genres (such as narrative, informational, and persuasive). New lessons that emphasize modeling show teachers how and what to model (including many examples of revision). Clear links between the six traits and the Common Core Standards for Writing provide teachers assurance that their instruction is in alignment with these standards. An extensive discussion of technology (Chapter 8) expands our twenty-first century definition of writing to include communication forms like PowerPoint, audio, and video. Revised chapter on quality assessment (Chapter 12) details ways to make both large-scale and classroom writing assessment more quality-driven, student-centered, and useful. A closer look at genre (Chapter 9) examines Purpose and Audience, showing how and why genre might be considered an additional trait of successful writing. Expanded interactive Questions & Activities expand teachers' skills, stimulate their thinking, and build a strong sense of community when used in a study group or teacher preparation classroom. New Author's Notes throughout the text speak directly to readers, citing additional resources, and suggesting lesson adaptations, book recommendations, and ways of differentiating instruction.

I think students would find it accessible, interesting, and practical. The authors' passion for children's literacy and education is clearly expressed in the text. - Erika J. Travis, California Baptist University Understanding how to select books for and with children is a key component of success as a teacher-so I was happy to see in-depth coverage of that, including the Age Level information as well as the Reading Interest questions [Chapter 2]. . . . The use of the color illustrations and then the chart with the Guide to Illustrations -very helpful [Chapter 4]. - Roxanne Owens, DePaul University . . .[S]trengths in each of the chapters [include] notable authors, recommended books, read alouds, investigation for further study, and the references. . . . I also use the award winners for our literature circles in class. - Judith Ann Stechly, West Liberty University

The Critical Reading Inventory: Assessing Students Reading and Thinking and Readers Passages
This is the only reading inventory on the market to support the treatment of reading as a thinking process through questions and assessments that measure not only readers' ability to recall facts, but also whether they can draw logical conclusions about those facts and respond critically to those conclusions. This book includes both narrative and expository readers' passages for use with pre-K readers through readers in grade 9; and is written in an accessible, inviting style. Through the use of longer passages, multi-level assessments, and case studies, the authors provide a truly effective means to secure a differential analysis of a child's reading comprehension performance. Three distinct levels of comprehension questions: text-based, inferential, and critical-assist in grouping readers by ability levels, from simple recall to critical engagement with text. Case studies of three levels of diagnostic analysis helps teachers understand the difference between readers who are having genuine difficulty and readers who are simply reluctant. Rubrics for retelling and for fluency stress that word recognition must be assessed within the context of comprehension. Inclusion of the simplified miscue analysis technique highlights both the reader's strategies and his/her orientation. FEATURES: * Automated Scoring and Interpretation Interview (ASII)--Teachers who use the ASII can include the formatted printouts as part of a student's academic records. * Tutorials for Scoring Miscues, Retellings and Comprehension Items * DVD-ROM Video Demonstrations of the CRI--Gives teachers access to demonstrations of the proper techniques for administering the CRI. The DVD also makes the CRI easier to learn for teachers who would like to administer the assessment but who have limited experience in using informal reading inventories. In addition to video demonstrations, the DVD includes two extensive case studies that demonstrate the capabilities of the CRI as a diagnostic instrument. * Expanded Number of Passages per Grade Level--this feature will allow users to gather pre-test and posttest information about a reader's performance, something that they could not easily do with the original CRI. It also allows for some flexibility in test administration. If a teacher feels, for example, that a student has simply not connected with the topic of a given passage or even has too much background knowledge has the option to test the child with a different passage. * Expanded Number of Grade Levels Assessed--this expanded range will allow users to assess older readers with a great deal more precision than was possible with the original CRI. * Expanded Technical Chapter--users who have been reluctant to consider the CRI because of the fear that the instrument has not been established statistically as a valid and reliable measure can put those fears to rest.
