We provide customized on-site, virtual, or blended professional development across the country to improve writing instruction, whether delivered online or face to face. Our writing coaches can help you and your team integrate 6+1 Trait Writing into your existing curricula and approaches. We are skilled at working with teachers across all grades and all levels of experience. Our trainings can be customized for special education and English language teachers, literacy coaches and trainers, curriculum specialists, and school and district administrators.
Using samples of your students’ writing, our assessment experts can provide scoring for regular assessments or develop a customized set of benchmark papers to support teachers and students in using the 6+1 Trait model consistently and effectively. You will receive detailed, objective feedback as well as scores. Our virtual scoring service includes a 20-minute consultation to plan the project, as well as a 20-minute debriefing session to ensure you and your staff feel confident using the model on your own.
To make sure students receive consistent feedback, all school and district staff should learn to use 6+1 Trait Writing thoughtfully and systematically. Recordings of our virtual presentations are a useful, inexpensive resource to streamline training for your entire team. We regularly add new presentations to this bank of resources in response to teacher requests, so the materials are timely and relevant. Include the recordings as part of a training package to receive virtual support that can be used throughout the year.
