I have always loved this cover we made for the NNWP's Secondary Writing Guide. It shows such great connections between the steps of the writing process and when students could ideally focus on any of the writing traits. I think my wonderful mentor--Carol Harriman--was the inspiration behind this cover.

In 2007, a group of Nevada teachers sat down with my wonderful wife (Dena) and created this trait-inspired metaphor and poster set. Here is that set of posters/charts that we happily share with you--straight from our classrooms to yours. We hope these materials inspire your students to accurately use more academic language during your classroom writing workshop times.

Make sure students RANK, not RATE. When ranking, students can only have one "1," one "5," etc., and having to think that analytically deepens the level of thinking. Here's a great lesson that makes use of this particular Sticky Note: http://www.corbettharrison.com/free_lessons/Synonym-Lists.htm

These serve as "mini scripts" that give my students academic language to use during Writer's Workshop, especially during response and conferencing time. This narrative sticky focuses on 3 different writing traits as they rank their use of skills; partners can agree or disagree with a writer's self-rankings, and the conversations lead to great revision plans.

These aren't posters but they serve--in my classroom--as "mini scripts" that give my students academic language to use during Writer's Workshop, especially during group response and teacher conferencing time. This Editing "Sticky Note" has students finding five editors to help them check for very specific conventional skills.

I think it would be great to have my students--in small groups--create their own onomatopoeia posters for the hallway! We'd use Mr. Stick--of course--to make sure all students could contribute to the visual aspect of the poster: http://corbettharrison.com/Mr_Stick.html

Point of View Circle Map....looking at the same event from multiple perspectives in the story. This would make a great mini lesson or extension lesson. Create one situation, and then have students write down facts from each point of view. This is a great idea that I would use in my classroom. You can have students complete the activity according to a book currently being read in the classroom.
