Teach students to write effectively by focusing on one element at a time. The Six Trait Model covers ideas and content, word choice, fluency, voice, organization, and conventions. Mastering these six traits will help students meet academic standards, score well on standardized tests, and gain skills they can use for life.
The activities target standards in these areas:
- the writing process
- conventions in writing
- sentence structure variety
- descriptive language including figurative language
