Six Traits of Writing

By: J.Parham


Idea is a focused  message or theme that is detail specific and showing and telling.

The reason I put the light bulb as my picture is because in cartoons  like Tom and Jerry, Mickey Mouse, and Spongebob, there is a bulb over their heads signifying that they have an idea about a solution to a problem.


Organization  engages the reader with an opening and conclusion.

I chose a Venn Diagram because in my notes, it states that a synonym/meaning of  organization is to compare and contrast.


Voice is the writers attitude on the subject based on the audience of readers.

I chose this picture because when I think of voice, I think of how Ursula took Ariel's voice.

Word Choice

Word Choice is the precise colorful language the communicates, moves, and ignites the reader.
