This was truly the most useful workshop that I have ever participated in. It will definitely help me teach my new writing class. The activities are quite useful and can be modified for any content area and any grade level.

Six Traits Live!
Six Traits Home
Welcome to Six Traits Live! Finally, quality professional development in the teaching of writing at an affordable price! At Six Traits Live! we incorporate best instructional practices into a lively, classroom-tested approach to teaching writing that is manageable for teachers and meaningful for students. By demonstrating the connection between writing process, writer’s workshop, literature through six traits instruction and assessment, we provide an instructional model that improves student writing.  
Because fewer than 10% of our nation’s teaching colleges offer a course in the teaching of writing, most teachers enter their classrooms without adequate preparation to help their students improve their writing skills. Six Traits Live! provides the strong professional development teachers need to help their students improve their writing.
Fred Wolff is a dynamic, knowledgeable, award winning teacher and presenter with twenty-four years of experience in public education, nineteen as a classroom teacher. After working for the past nine years with Vicki Spandel, the developer of the Six Traits model, Fred has decided to venture out on his own. His writing workshops, filled with classroom-tested, quality information presented with humor and a down-to-earth style, have energized teachers throughout the United States and around the world, having worked with teachers in over a dozen countries. Teachers enjoy and appreciate his constant connections between writing and reading as he incorporates literature throughout his workshops. As an added bonus, Fred’s workshops are affordable, enabling schools to provide their teachers with the quality professional development they’ve desired but could not afford. Fred’s book, The Write Direction: A New Teacher’s Guide to Teaching Writing, is now available for purchase.
