Vicki Spandel—a writer who's passionate about the teaching of writing—is writer, editor, journalist, and a former language arts teacher. She’s composed a vast range of items (including newspaper columns, faculty telecourses, journal articles, tips, advertising-- also copy to menus!) But is best known for educational books that creatively combine composing literature, traits, process, and writing workshop. Her novels are conversations with teachers, so that she does her very best to fulfill them with practical teaching ideas, comedy, and voice.
In 1984, Vicki coordinated the 17-member instructor team (at Beaverton, Oregon)which developed the first, nationally recognized 6-trait version for writing assessment and instruction. Since that time, she has taught trait-based writing to tens of thousands of educators and students (most of whom were prepared), also has served as scoring manager for many county, state, and district writing tests.
Vicki is the author of over 40 publications for teachers and pupils, such as Creating Writers, 6th edition and Creating Young Writers, 3rd edition (Pearson); The Building Revisers and Editors series (Pearson); The 9 Rights of Every Writer (Heinemann); also (with co-author Jeff Hicks)The Write Traits Classroom Kits and Compose Traits Kindergarten (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt).
Currently, she makes her home in the tiny picturesque town of Sisters, bordering the beautiful Three Sisters Wilderness area of Central Oregon. She resides in a log house made by her husband Jerry, moves cross country skiing every chance she gets, visits Maui now and again --where she likes to snorkel, and is working on several picture books, all of them about creatures. She is also teaching her eight-year-old grandson Jack to ski, and except for he's doing remarkably well. (Jack believes Vicki's improving, too.)
