GTCC Summer Institute 2019
Beyond the 6 Traits: Taking Writing Assessment to the Next Level
Review the 6+1 Traits of Writing and discuss how the language of the traits is embedded in the Common Core writing assessments. Teachers will write trait-based prompts suitable for district-wide writing assessments. Learn how to run a district-wide writing assessment tied to rubrics with clear and concise descriptions of student outcomes. Rubrics will also be tied to writing used on the Common Core written response sections (argumentative, explanatory, narrative) and leveled according to student abilities: novice, nearing proficiency, proficient, and advanced. Student samples will be provided and scored. Each participant will receive a copy of a revised 6+1 Traits binder with emphasis added to writing assessments for grade, school, and district use. Teachers will discuss trends in writing assessment will also take place.
