Writing Traits: Teaching the Skills of Organization
teacher-created resources and lessons...all focused on skills that make up the organization trait

 

Organization is a complex trait that should be discussed, explored, and further developed every year that students learn to write in school; both kindergartners and high school seniors can be taught to think about developmentally appropriate skills that are associated with organization. This page contains organization lessons and resources that we consider appropriate for sharing with third graders and up. If you are working with primary writers and the six traits, be sure to visit WritingFix's 6 Traits and Primary Writing Homepage.

Nick Urban's curator insight, July 16, 2015 6:14 PM

This is a terrific video that highlights the importance of using multimedia presentations as tools to engage learners. These are not information sharing platforms, rather ways to engage students in specific and structured learning in a meaningful way. It serves as a great reminder and tool to show how to utilize the power of multimedia presentations to generate learning, not give information!
