EFFECT OF THE 6+1 TRAIT WRITING MODEL ON STUDENT WRITING ACHIEVEMENT

N. DeJarnette

Limestone College (UNITED STATES)
The focus of this study was to determine the difference between teaching the 6+1 Trait Writing Model to fifth graders and the traditional writing workshop method of teaching writing on overall student writing achievement according to the data supplied by a writing rubric. The study involved 8 classes of fifth graders in 2 different schools. One school provided instruction according to the 6+1 Trait Writing Model, and the other school provided instruction using the traditional writing workshop method of teaching writing. It was hypothesized that students receiving instruction using the 6+1 Trait Writing Model would exhibit greater gains in writing achievement and quality according to the data supplied by a writing rubric. Significant differences were found in two out of four component areas. Results indicated that the type of method used to teach writing is not as significant as providing structured instruction as well as time for student writing.
