Pioneered by Education Northwest almost 30 years ago, the 6+1 Traits continue to help thousands of teachers worldwide improve their writing instruction, increase their understanding of the qualities of good writing, and hone their ability to provide effective feedback to students.

Currently we are finalizing revisions to the rubrics to make them easier to use in meeting writing expectations for the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Please contact Mark Workman if you would like to be notified when the rubrics are available.

We are offering a free consultation to school and district leaders on using the traits to meet CCSS expectations and improve writing school- and districtwide. Please contact 6+1 Manager Jacqueline Raphael to schedule this consultation.
