    5 Elements of Good Writing
    By CQ

    Clip to ScrapBook
       
    The 5 Elements of Good Writing are:

    _____PURPOSE (clear audience, subject, and genre)
    _____DIRECTION (proper structure, organization, logical order)
    _____IDEAS (connection to reader, specific details, variety)
    _____STYLE (expression, word choice, sentence variety, figurative language, etc...)
    _____PRESENTATION (spelling, punctuation, capitalization, paragraphing, neatness, pen or typed)

    I teach each one before I grade them on the skill. I never assume they "just" know it.
