Ideas, Organization, Word Choice

The "six traits of writing" are six different areas of writing that we can focus on as we revise and discuss any writing that we do! You need to be familiar with these different traits so that you can check over and improve your own writing, and to understand the feedback given to you by teachers. These "traits" will be the different categories that are used to grade most of your writing in middle school.

7th and 8th Grade Review:

Please click on the links below to review the slide show of the first three traits. You will then make a foldable with 3 sections in order to write down the notes on the last slide of each show in the appropriate section. Your 3 flaps should be labeled, "IDEAS" "ORGANIZATION" and "WORD CHOICE." (You can get paper for your foldable on the back counter in the white plastic drawers.) 

Put your heading on the back of your foldable, and turn it in to your class inbox.
