SIX TRAITS OF WRITING

Cathedral Parish School uses the Six Traits of Writing Program approach.  The traits provide teachers VPK-8 with a shared vision and vocabulary for describing the qualities of good writing.  These  six traits include the following.

  • Ideas—the main message.

  • Organization—the internal structure of the piece.

  • Voice—the personal tone and flavor of the author's message.

  • Word Choice—the vocabulary a writer chooses to convey meaning.

  • Sentence Fluency—the rhythm and flow of the language.

  • Conventions—the mechanical correctness

 

Mrs. Courtney Gordon, a professionally renowned six-trait trainer has worked with our classroom teachers and students providing mini-lessons for six-trait implementation within the curriculum and has provided direction helping staff members to create rubrics designed to improve overall student writing performance.
