Resources for Writing Instruction

  • The Genesee Valley Central School District entered its final phase of implementation of the 6 plus 1 Traits of Writing in December of 2013, when all PK-12 teachers were initially involved in professional development around the Traits. With the 6 plus 1 Traits of Writing as our foundation, students receive consistent instruction using common vocabulary around writing; this helps to build a stable foundation of writing skills to support implementation of the Next Generation Learning Standards in Literacy.
