Each teacher resource book contains creative ideas and materials to enhance teaching. From classroom d cor to thematic units to free-time activities, teacher resource books provide materials that you can use in your classroom.

Daily 6-Trait Writing gives your eighth graders scaffolded, focused writing practice. Each of the 25 weekly units provides trait-based writing practice in concise activities that cover the essential traits of strong writing: ideas, organization, word choice, sentence fluency, voice, and conventions. The weekly units present a writing skill on Day 1, and writing activities progress in difficulty until students apply what they've learned to a writing prompt on Day 5. Daily 6-Trait Writing is easy to use and offers you the flexibility to teach weekly units in consecutive order or to pick and choose lessons to meet student needs.
