Mentor Texts

For the last several weeks, many of you have been participating in the Wondrous Words book study.  In it, Katie Wood Ray talks about the importance of having mentor texts to help us teach writing.  WritingFix is another resource we have been using this year, and we now have the opportunity to help select the mentor text  and theme WritingFix will use next year. 

Here is a link for more information on how you can help decide what WritingFix will concentrate on next year.  http://writingfix.com/classroom_tools/MTY.htm#vote

If you haven’t used this year’s mentor text, here is the link to the mentor text by Ralph Fletcher and the lessons that go with it.  http://writingfix.com/classroom_tools/MTY.htm#this_year

The end of the year is a great time to do an author or genre study.  WritingFix is a wonderful resource!
