Mentor Texts: The Going Deep with 6 Trait Language Guide--on-line Bibliography
The following list of books are cited in one of the NNWP's popular print guides.

"[Your 6 Trait Guide] is a thoughtful and logical series of lessons which help classroom teachers integrate the 6 + 1 Traits of Writing into their teaching of writing and thinking. Kudos to the NNWP for funding and promoting this resource." (Robin R., Maryland teacher)

Earn a free copy of the Going Deep with 6 Trait Language Guide by publishing a student writer from your class at WritingFix or contributing an original lesson to us.

A Bibliography for Teachers Interested in the Going Deep Guide: In 2006, the Northern Nevada Writing Project (sponsor of this free-to-use website) published a 196-page resource for teachers: The Going Deep with 6 Trait Language Guide.

The guide features trait-specific lessons and resources designed to help all students use 6 trait language better as they explore the act of writing. Many of the guide's lessons and resources cite awesome picture and chapter books as examples of powerfully crafted text to show and discuss with students. Many Northern Nevada school libraries made sure they had all cited books from the guide available to their teachers.

When the NNWP began selling copies of this resource from its website to teachers outside of Northern Nevada as a fund-raiser for WritingFix's growth, we received dozens and dozens of e-mails from teachers asking us to publish an easy-to-refer-to bibliography for the guide.

Below, you will find the bibliography we eventually created. It is organized by trait, and if you hover over the links, you can check each book's availability at Amazon.com.

Only one publication cited on this page cannot be ordered through Amazon: the Northern Nevada Writing Project's Going Deep with 6 Trait Language Guide, but the 196-page guide can be ordered from the NNWP's website by clicking here.

All proceeds made from selling this guide are invested into the WritingFix website to fund its future growth.
