Last Stop On Market Street Wins 2016 Newbery Medal
Last Stop on Market Street by Matt de la Pena was awarded the 2016 John Newbery Medal for the most outstanding contribution to children's literature.
As teachers of writing, we seek out books that inspire us, and authors whose words linger in our memories. These are the books that make the traits of writing, and our interactive read aloud, come alive. These stories make our students desire to write themselves. I will be posting lesson ideas for teaching several of the 6 Traits of Writing and a lesson to guide you with prompts for discussion and written response in an interactive read aloud lesson.

I provide instruction on effectively teaching writing. I have presented in-service workshops on this subject in many Western New York school districts. I completed advanced training in the 6 +1 Trait Writing model from the Northwest Regional Education Laboratory, and have been training teachers in using this model for over twelve years.
