I just put together a list of character traits for my students, ranking them as positive, negative, or a mix between the two for an upcoming character study unit we’re doing in Reading Workshop. That being said, this list of character traits can certainly be used within a personal narrative or short fiction unit of study in Writing Workshop.

I am a literacy consultant who has spent the past dozen years working with teachers to improve the teaching of writing in their classrooms. While I work with teachers and students in grades K-6, I'm a former fourth and fifth-grade teacher so I have a passion for working with upper elementary students.
I'm the author of Craft Moves (Stenhouse Publishers, 2016) and the co-author of Jump Into Writing (Zaner-Bloser, 2021), Welcome to Writing Workshop (Stenhouse Publishers, 2019), and Day By Day (Stenhouse, 2010).
