    Power writing is just about organization. 6 traits are what we strive for writing to be. If you were trying to draw a person, Power writing would be a stick person. If you were Rembrant and created a painting, that would be six traits. The goal of writing is to have the piece excell in all 6 traits. If you succeed you will have a masterpiece of writing.

    Your low writers will enjoy the easy formula of Power Writing. It will give them a direction and a clue about how to start writing and what it needs to look like to get started. Once you have established the formula choose a new trait and introduce them to it. Use old writing examples and have them develop that particular trait in the writing. You can also find examples of the trait in reading.
