6+1 Trait Writing

Education Northwest developed the 6+1 Trait Writing Model of Instruction & Assessment to help educators provide clear, consistent, and evidence-based feedback on student writing. Many schools and districts are beginning to emphasize students’ writing skills across the curriculum. This makes it even more essential that all staff members use a common terminology and common strategies to provide feedback. We offer a broad range of training, technical assistance, and resources, including free starter materials such as rubrics and Common Core crosswalks.
