Every author uses the 6 traits of writing to create a piece full of detail wonderful ideas that are clearly spoken, organized well, convey compelling meaning, while using correct conventions, sentence fluency, and intriguing words or phrases. This rubric exists to help teachers grade a student's writing, while giving students clear and precise expectations.


* While grading ask yourself, "Is it more 5 than 4, or 4 than 3, or more 2 than 1? etc."

* To help answer this question I begin underlining what the student accomplished in his/her work under each category so that I can go back and see which has the most underlined qualities.

* Be sure to go through the rubric together as a class.

* Grading previously done work helps students master what is expected in good writing.
