Shakespeare and Poe Teach Six-Trait Writing

A Six-Trait Writing lesson helps your middle schoolers liven up their word choice and shows them how to evaluate their own writing. Class members take a close look at the language used in poems by Shakespeare, Kipling, Longfellow, and others, and then draft their own piece of writing. Suggested poem list, discussion questions for each poem, a writing rubric, and paragraph examples are included in this six-day, richly detailed plan.

Lesson Planet has been one of the primary ingredients for the mortar I need in order to successfully provide a positive learning environment for my students. It saves me the effort of weeding through the abyss of internet resources available and provides quality resources from qualified and experienced teachers. Thank You!!!
