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.
