Six +1 Traits of Writing - The Squaire Scoop - Google Sites
Thirty-six thoughtful writing lessons--6 per trait--all designed by a dozen Nevada teachers who were determined to make trait language accessible to their kindergarten and first grade writers. Each lesson comes with a solid focus on a single trait, as well as with suggestions for mentor texts, access to student samples, and ideas for graphic and advanced organizers. The intent of this guide is to inspire fellow kindergarten and first grade teachers to craft high-quality, trait-focused lessons based on mentor texts they use with their students.

The framework I'm using here to talk about good writing is based on the Six Traits model which I received my training in from Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory. Over the years I have modified, simplified, and in many cases changed much of the language outright because it seemed to work better for me that way in the classroom. NWREL has made many changes to Six Traits, too. In fact, they now call it Six Plus One Traits. But it's based on the same basic idea of using trait-based criteria to define good work.
