    My favorite trait to teach is word choice and it seems to go along with the elaboration part of the idea trait.

    I guess it is my favorite because I have some cool activities and it also seems to be the writing stage that my sixth graders are in when they arrive in the fall.

    Voice is the most challenging. At the beginning of the year I get kids thinks voice is, "Hey dude, did you know that Hatshepsut was the first female pharoah?" Uck! Teaching proper tone and refined words for the audience is more challenging.
