I have a son at the grade 7 level who needs help with his
writing. I have heard a lot about the 6 traits method but
can someone please tell me if this is what is used most
widely in schools today.

Unfortunately, my son does not get a lot of practice
writing in school. For example, I can't remember the last
day he had an essay to write for homework. I do believe
that they should have at least one such assignment at
least once a week.

I would greatly appreciate it if someone could give me
some guidance. I don't have a lot of time to study a pile
of books, but if you could direct me to a website that
would help me get started or even a book that he would
find helpful, I'm sure that we will make progress.

I would also like to get a list of story starters that he
could use.

Thanks much,
