Six Traits: Voice handout for young and struggling writers
This beginning level handout and reference sheet is designed to prompt young writers who struggle to show voice in their writing. Because there are no black and white rules about how to show voice in writing, it can be difficult for writers who not do so naturally, or, those who do best when given 'dos and don'ts'.
This document gives around 20 examples of fairly generic statements that show voice. Students can use these as inspiration and examples to help them integrate voice into their writing.
There are also sentence starters to help students incorporate voice into their writing.
