Six Traits Writing Model

The 6-trait writing model is a way to assess and teach writing. This model focuses on 6 qualities seen in outstanding written works.

The six traits include:

Ideas: The content, or main theme. Can be looked at as the heart of the message.

Organization: The internal structure of the writing.

Voice: The personal voice of author comes through. This gives a sense of a real person speaking.

Word Choice: The use of precise, colorful and rich words to communicate.

Sentence Fluency: The writing flows together often with a rhythm or cadence.

Conventions: Mechanical correctness, including spelling and grammar.
