Thanks for making the day fun. A bad college instructor once said, “If you don’t have 'talent' in writing then you will never be able to write well.” An excellent college instructor modeled and gave great literature examples---truly gave me a better idea of great writing.

Six Traits Workshops


Workshops can be tailored to meet the needs of a school or district. Options include but are not limited to the following:

1. A two-to-three hour overview of the traits.
2. A one day workshop in which teachers will explore two or three traits in depth.
3. A two day workshop in which teachers will explore all six traits in depth with time also spent discussing how to implement the traits in classrooms on a day-to-day basis.
4. Model lessons taught in your classrooms with your students while teachers observe the lessons. A short debrief with the teachers follows each lesson.
5. A train-the-trainer program. Once a district has implemented the traits, the challenge is to provide training for new staff and on-going support for veteran teachers. Through this cost-effective approach, Fred can guide some of your master teachers into the role of trainer and coach.
6. A three hour workshop for administrators that focuses on how they can support the traits in their buildings so the initiative becomes a powerful tool in all classrooms for all students.
