Do you want your students to be independent writers? Teach them to identify mentor texts on their own!
As teachers, we often share great examples of writing through the use of mentor texts. Students need to recognize great writing on their own. With these 6 Trait bookmarks, students are encouraged to find and share examples of the traits that they notice in the books that they read.
Not only does this system allow students the chance to “teach" others, it also lets the teacher know which students understand the power of a particular writing trait.
Your students will be keen observers, on the lookout for great examples of writing!
This set includes 2 bookmarks per sheet. One bookmark is included for ideas, organization, voice, word choice, and sentence fluency. There is not a bookmark for conventions as it is understood that all published books have strong writing conventions.
