Birth Announcement

Traits Writing was born at 10:17 CST, Monday, July 25, 2011.  Weighing in at 368 pages of lesson plans for every grade, and in full color, Traits Writing:  The Complete Writing Program for Grades K-8 made its debut appearance at the Scholastic National Sales Conference to the standing applause of a hundred or more eager Reps.  Proud parents Ruth Culham and Ray Coutu were on hand to walk through each extraordinary feature. Godparents  Dick Robinson, Greg Worrell, and Patrick Daley spoke eloquently about how Traits Writing would help every teacher and her students meet and exceed their writing goals.    There was dancing and singing as the Writing Revolution began and a new era of writing instruction was officially launched.  To quote the tired yet exuberant birthing team, “This is a day of celebration for writing teachers everywhere.”    Check out newborn photos:  www.scholastic.com/traitswriting.

Enjoy the celebration at the Sales Conference from Scholastic V.P Patrick Daley and members of the sales team of the School Classroom and Community Group:  SCCG

    Good post. I learn something totally new and challenging on sites I stumbleupon everyday.
    It’s always exciting to read articles from other writers and use something from their web sites.
