A VISUAL menu of VOICES writing elements, including Voice, Organization, Conventions, Excellent Words, Sentence Fluency.
This item can also be used/modified as a checklist and/or rubric.
~Great for the visual learner, non-reader, or ELL student.
There is also a self-monitoring element located at the top. At conference time, students and teacher can delineate sub-topics that are strengths and areas that are personal goals. This is a great item to color-copy on oak tag and store in a Writer's Workshop folder or Write Traits Folder.
I will have my students refer to this menu as they write in their classrooms, and it will return with them to the Resource Room for our writing time. In this way we are building consistency and providing a reference for the learners who learn in several environments.
