6 + 1 Traits of Writing

How to become great writer

We are going to explore the 6 Traits of writing and use them to become more powerful writers. Look at each of the Traits in detail. Your goal should be to always write at the highest level. We will learn how to score sample writing pieces in class, then you will be expected to score some of your own work and then other student’s work. In the process, you will learn how to discriminate between different levels of writing and make your own writing better.

Homework: Use the scoring guide/rubric to score your own Feudal Narrative. Bring a copy of your Feudal Narrative and the rubric to class on Wednesday.
