Trait order
 
In what order does everyone introduce the traits? Our faculty has been discussing trying a different order this year. We think sentence flinch should be introduced earlier. Also, I had difficulty teaching voice last year in 3rd grade because of time and some struggled with understanding it. This year I'm in first, should I even teach the voice trait?

In my school's curriculum, for 2nd grade, only four of the six traits are taught: ideas, organization, voice, and conventions. They are introduced in a quick one week overview. They are expanded and reviewed with each writing unit.

Here are some lesson plans for teaching voice based on Vicki Spandel's book Creating Young Writers.

See the whole thread for lesson plans for the other traits.

Can't wait for the new edition of Spandel's book!
