6 Traits of Writing


Organization

  • K-12 Student writers across America say that Organization is the hardest of the six traits.

  • Organization gives your writing direction.


Organization

  • Begin with a strong lead, so you hook the reader right off the bat.

  • Don’t settle for “Once upon a time” or “My paper is all about dogs.”


Organization

  • Your lead ( introduction) works like a fishing lure that dangles right in front of the nose of a fish until he just can’t resist!


Organization

  • Your whole piece of writing should carefully build to the most important moment or point you are trying to make.

  • The details work like stepping stones.


Organization

  • The order of your details is important, too.

  • They need to come at the right time to help the reader understand.

  • Keep a strong connecting line back to the main idea.


Organization

  • Don’t get bogged down in trivial details like what color the hero’s socks were, or whether she had milk on her cereal.

  • When you reach the end, make your last point…and STOP.


Organization

  • Don’t use endings like, “Now you know the three reasons why Americans should car pool.” --- or --- “I hope you have enjoyed my paper on car pooling.”

  • Make your last sentence count!


Now it is time to practice

Now it is time to PRACTICE:

  • Write a story, again about anything you know well, make sure to have the story in the proper order!!! (4 to 6 sentences)
