The 6 Traits of Writing Rubric is a scoring guide to help support teachers as they are building a class to help students learn proper writing traits. It is important to teach children the 6 traits of writing as early as possible but it is never too late and students are never too old. There is a language of writing on which teachers and students must focus on the process of writing to understand the skills required to be a strong writer.

  • Thinking
  • Listening
