6+1 Trait® Writing Model

Last Updated: Dec 22, 2016 01:02PM PST

Does the Being a Writer program use the 6+1 Traits?


The goals of the Being a Writer program correlate closely with those of the 6+1 Traits writing framework, and the traits are integrated into the program. The 6+1 Traits framework provides teachers and students with a common language to discuss good writing and rubrics to assess the quality of writing. While Being a Writer uses its own language to help teachers and students understand and assess good writing, each of the 6+1 Traits—ideas, organization, voice, word choice, sentence fluency, conventions, and presentation—is addressed in the instruction and assessed in the Individual Writing Assessment record sheets (IA), as appropriate for each writing genre.

For grade-specific examples of the 6+1 Traits in Being a Writer, please refer to the “Understanding the Program” section in the Introduction of your Teacher’s Manual.
