Key Qualities of the 6 + 1 Writing Traits

There are 7 "Traits" of writing we'll be studying this year. They are:
  1. Ideas
  2. Organization
  3. Voice
  4. Word Choice
  5. Sentence Fluency
  6. Conventions
  7. Presentation
A "trait" is an aspect or characteristic of writing. If you write an essay, you won't just receive a letter grade or single score. You could be assessed on a variety of traits such as ideas, organization as well as conventions. Rarely would a single piece of writing be assessed for all 7 traits.

Below is a Prezi on specific components, or key qualities, we will be studying for each trait this year.
