Is it now called 7 traits?
I used the term "6 traits" in a generic way the other day (referring to some rubrics I had gotten from writing fix) and our new writing guru corrected me (in a rather snide tone) saying "7 traits." Did I miss something?

6 + 1
I've seen it referred to as 6+1 but never 7.

Me too. I think what bothered me was the condescending tone she used to correct me. I know my P is just trying to appease some teachers who have come on our staff (their school closed and we took their students) by giving them a voice, but geez- this woman got all her info from the same place I did.

Sorry, this turned into a rant. <!--misspeak--><!--giggle-->

It's 6+1
That's really funny. She has probably seen the 6 + 1 somewhere and just added it up. You just have to laugh at it to yourself and move on. At least you know that writing guru might not be the correct moniker:D!
