      I felt the course was good. I have attended her speaking and have one of her books. I did feel that the question in the quiz regarding fluency turned itself into a trick question when leaving off the word sentence. While I knew the word sentence with it, I’m not sure that this course (at an hour) is enough to internalize the six traits of writing if you did not know them coming in. Also, all of the extras with books at the end is rough for people only living on their teacher salary. It will promote inequity in districts where some teachers can afford to do it and some cannot.

      It was not a secondary training. My HS students might like having stuffed animals created from their imaginative writing, but it does not correlate w/ their TEKS>
