The text itself is well-written, and in my opinion Spandel does not waste words. As I read through the book, I found myself hanging on to her every word.

Spandel’s style is full of voice and verve. Her style is always clear and engaging. Her organization is superb, leading us through the 6 traits in a logical and thought-provoking fashion. She speaks directly to teachers with expertise we find believable. She gives us confidence to improve our craft.
This book is frequently helpful to me as a classroom teacher. Writing lessons in our classrooms look different every year, every day. Our lessons depend on the needs of our individual students. I am always looking to CW for new ways to help my kiddos become joyful writers. I so appreciate Spandel’s warm and inviting style–she speaks to me.

Spandel provides more than just theory or just strategies; rather, she combines both theory and practice within a flexible framework that my candidates can use to approach writing instruction in a structured – but not prescribed – manner. Spandel’s approach helps my students see ways to synthesize literature, reading, and writing instruction in a meaningful fashion.
