What are the 6 + 1 Writing Traits?
The day prior to Thanksgiving Break, a group of recent ULS alumni visited campus to share with our 7th through 12th graders how to best prepare for college. This is a really powerful tradition because our students can relate to the young adult college students and they genuinely listen to these role models. One of our recent alumni discussed how well prepared she was to write collegiate level papers. She felt her writing skills were developed to a high degree from the 6 + 1 Trait process taught at ULS. So, what is the 6 + 1 Trait process? Why is it so effective? Watch the following YouTube video made by a North Carolina school teacher that outlines the effective strategy.
