The Genesee Valley Central School District is in its' final phase of implementation of the 6 plus 1 Traits of Writing; at the end of December 2013, all PK-12 teachers will have been involved in professional development around the Traits. With the 6 plus 1 Traits of Writing as our foundation, students will receive consistent instruction using common vocabulary around writing; this will help to build a stable foundation of writing skills to support implementation of the Common Core Standards in Literacy. Below are some resources available to parents, teachers and students to use a resources for writing. Watch for these to be added to and updated as the year progresses!
