Principles of an Effective Writing Program

Research Based Strategies within 6 Trait Power Write™

Meeting the Needs of All Students

Three principles of an effective writing instruction program:

  • basic framework of planning, writing, and revision

  • specific genre and writing process instruction

  • feedback guided by the strategies explicitly taught

(Gersten, Baker, Edwards, 1999)

6 Trait Power Write™ encompasses all principals of an effective writing program. In addition, it goes beyond what research says is essential and incorporates reading, listening, and speaking strategies into the writing process, empowering all students to master the skills needed for AYP.

Self-Regulated Strategy Development (SRSD)

Strategies within 6 Trait Power Write™ were developed using the principles of the SRSD model. This model promotes independent learners, insuring all levels of students will become literate and productive lifelong learners.

Self-Regulated Strategy Development (SRSD):

Researchers Karen Harris and Steve Graham designed SRSD for students with learning disabilities, but all students have been found to benefit.

(Beckman, 2002)

The three goals of the SRSD approach:

  • Assist students in mastering the cognitive processes of planning,

    producing, revising, and editing written language

  • Help students further develop the capability to monitor and

    manage their own writing

  • Aid students in developing positive attitudes about writing and

    about themselves as writers

(Graham, Harris, Troia, 2000)

Building Literacy – Quantity and Quality

Research Based Strategies within 6 Trait Power Write™

Meeting the Needs of All Students

A comprehensive reading and writing program must include:

  • quantity

  • quality

(Cunningham, Cunningham, Allington, 2002)

6 Trait Power Write™ promotes quality writing through the structure of research based strategies as students work through the POWER WRITE Process.

In addition, the management of strategies promotes substantial writing practice without overwhelming the teacher or the student.
