The teachers in my school wanted a unified writing poster to post in our classrooms so that we all were teaching the same things. These are how Nebraska now assesses state writing. They have combined the six-traits of writing into four categories. I have color coded the posters for middle and high school. Purple is specific to middle school, red is specific to high school, and blue is universal to both levels. I found the pics online so I hope that I didn't step on any toes with them.
