Syllabus - Teaching and Assessing Writing with the 6-Traits | 6-Traits Resources | Scoop.it

100% Online Graduate Professional Development


Course Description


Concepts, instructional methods and assessment strategies for improving writing instruction, middle school through post-secondary. Self-assessment strategies, application of 6-traits, technology and software applications, and writing across the curriculum.

This class will focus on how to apply the Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory's 6+1 Traits™ model to the process of teaching and evaluating writing.


The course activities will investigate the vocabulary, concepts, and application of writing traits to classroom instruction and student assessment. Take a few moments to review the class objectives.

Each module is structured around an Introduction, Readings, Lecture, Activities, an Activity Checklist, and Discussion Forum.

You will work individually and as part of a community to practice and refine your assessment skills. You will score a variety of demonstration papers, discuss your rationale with online colleagues, discover a variety of classroom strategies for teaching the traits, and share your own teaching methods.


While online education is highly flexible and designed to meet your schedule, you will need to set and meet deadlines as part of your weekly assignments and collaborative work. Additionally, your colleagues will depend on you for timely feedback as you work together to deepen and clarify essential concepts.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

This course is offered three times a year. It becomes an amazing international community of writing teachers who share practical classroom methods while learning to assess writing with the 6-Traits. 


Tuition: $415 per semester hour graduate credit / $1245 a course. There is no registration fee. Tuition is the same for in-state, out-of-state and international participants.
